Adelaide's Secret World
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
Adelaide lives a quiet life in a mysterious city. Her formerly busy life has changed, now she watches over the eclectic cast of the city's inhabitants by day, and stares up at the stars by night. However, one stormy day leads to a chance meeting with someone similar to her, instigating much change in Adelaide's life and her city.
The beautiful and surreal painted illustrations not only add to the mystery of the city, but also help accentuate Adelaide's loneliness and, later, her joy.
