Shining Land reviewed by Sarah Shieff, ANZL


Sarah Shieff reviews Shining Land: Looking for Robin Hyde by Paula Morris and Haru Sameshima on the Academy of New Zealand Literature Te Whare Mātātuhi o Aotearoa website:

‘Shining Land is the second title in Massey University Press’s enterprising kōrero series. The series presents itself as picture books for grown-ups, which goes some way to accounting for this volume’s appeal: like the best picture books, Shining Land is short and physically beautiful; the narrative and the images are inseparable and entirely complementary; it’s a book to read in a single sitting, and return to. And, like the best picture books, it opens up vistas well beyond its relatively modest scale.’
