Rufus the Numbat

Rufus the Numbat

by David Miller

Rufus Numbat walks out of the bush at the front of the book back into the bush at the end of the book. Rufus does not care for things of the town like cappuccinos or cream cake, or for the town and its parade and noise. But on his way Rufus startles a cyclist and later a Chinese Dragon creating all sorts of mayhem.
David Miller’s minimalist text contrasts with his detailed paper sculptures set over pen and ink backgrounds.
