I have This is San Francisco. I agree. Any of his books could easily be called This is Wonderful!

Wow! I have a very "loved" copy of this book . It's funny to read dated accounts of our cities.

It does looks like a really cute book!

I haven't got my hands on a copy yet but I will be on the lookout for one. Then I can give a peek as to what's inside. Lots of Australian icons and tidbits with beautiful illustrations I think! : )

oh wow - i didnt even know he did a 'This is...Australia' edition?! i love his books and so do my boys - was this a vintage find or have they re-released it??

Hello AnastasiaC!

I discovered this book online, it mentioned on the M. Sasek website that it was re-released last month though I haven't seen it on the shelves.

I'll keep my eye out at Metropolis Bookstore as they do sell others from the same series.

Can't wait to get a copy : )
