Time spent reading this book will be time spent with old, familiar friends. There is a warmth, richness and humour about the poems of Banjo Paterson that has endeared them to generations of Australians. The Man from Snowy River, Mulga Bills Bicycle and The Geebung Polo Club are as well known to todays school children as they are to their parents and grandparents. The words Waltzing Matilda have, of course, become recognised in every part of the world as Australias own song. Combined with Pro Harts paintings, which capture the humour of some of these poems, the pathos and loneliness of others, the poems come alive once more.
