Show Day beautifully captures the quintessential nature of an Australian country show. It's the day when all the farmers and their families show their prize animals and enter competitions for the best produce, flowers, cakes, jams and pickles. As well as the fun of the competitions, there are also rides, games of chance and show bags.
In this story, Andrew Mclean's beautiful drawings compliment Penny Matthews text as we follow a farm family and their luck at the show. Will they win biggest pumpkin and what is the girl's most unusual pet?
