Baby Bilby and his Dad are out on a clear, moonlit night. 'How long will you love me?', asks Baby Bilby. His Dad has many answers: 'until a crow catches a falling star', 'until a platypus plays with a porpoise' and so on. From this Baby Bilby concludes his love will last a long time. 'I will love you forever, his Dad confirms.
This is a warm and simple story, perfect for sharing with a child at bedtime. The illustrations are soft but colourful, a series of double page spreads illustrating Dad's examples. Each scene has an indigo sky, giving a sense of nighttime, cosiness and restfulness.
