About the Story

On a perfect day, the hours stretch endlessly ahead ...

Perfect is the simple story of three loving siblings, enjoying a magical, carefree and peaceful day in a wonderful coastal-rural setting. 

Scribbling, nibbling, baking, fixing, walking, talking, singing, snuggling, cuddling and dreaming... just some of the delightfully idyllic exploits the children enjoy. 

Danny Parker's evocative verse creates a sense of safety, simplicity and freedom as the children enjoy their perfect summers day. Coupled with Freya Blackwood's rich and gentle illustrations, this story truly is perfect in every sense. 

Read beautifully by Katrina Mathers, this story is one sure to be enjoyed time and again.
