A tawny antipodean hunter pads through Tannya Harricks’s gorgeous, impressionistic oil paintings… a double-text approach allows the book to be read at two levels, with the larger writing following a particular female dingo as she hunts “softly, softly through the forest . . . sure-footed, flexible, and fast,” while the smaller writing conveys facts about the nature and habits of these wild dogs. With thick brushstrokes, Ms. Harricks summons the sere land and low trees of the Australian bush, the unseen moon turning the ground almost white as the dingo hunts for a rabbit to feed her pups. It’s a beautiful tribute to an often-maligned animal, and wonderful to read aloud.
