The Fisher Birds (Hard Copy)


This story was inspired by the real-life experiences of Ben Innes observing his friends, the pelicans, out the back of ‘The Boatshed,’ which has been the family business since 1954. The Fisher Birds highlights the fishing adventures of pelican pals Slim and Tim in search of the best fish for the local fish shop. I.B. Gumnut’s unique style of rhyming and rhythmic words are brought to life by the distinct and imaginative illustrations of his son, Joe Innes.

The Boatshed is an iconic fish and chips stop in Batemans Bay. Many people have commented over the years that it is hard to imagine ‘the Bay’ without The Boatshed! As a major feature of the waterfront, overlooking the Clyde River and out to the Pacific Ocean, this is where many an Innes trawling boat has ventured from in search of fresh fish…just like Slim and Tim did in The Fisher Birds. It’s wonderful to see The Boatshed captured in a story that will capture the hearts and minds of people of all ages, especially the locals and those with fond memories of holidaying in Batemans Bay. The Fisher Birds is the latest release–check it out now!
