Frané Lessac’s bio

Under the Southern Cross

author/illustrator: Frané Lessac

After nightfall in Australia, families watch movies as bats flit overhead, mysterious orbs of light bounce across the outback, a staircase to the moon appears reflected at the ocean’s edge, and a Ferris wheel offers a citywide view — all under the Southern Cross. Bright and colorful artwork, fascinating natural phenomena, and shared experiences connect people across the country in Frané Lessac’s fascinating tour of Australia at night.

This celebratory picture book from Frané Lessac shines a light on beloved nighttime activities under the starry skies of Australia.
