Aboriginal/ATSI Content , Picture book

In collaboration between the children in the main township of Gununa on Mornington Island and much loved Picture book creators Alison Lester and Elizabeth Honey this book is an excellent example of what can be achieved with beautiful simple text, skilled design, and children’s art. The book also contains information about the Mornington Island people and the language of the Lardil. The authors describe also how a wax-resist technique was used to create the illustrations. Well described by the publishers; ‘ In this lyrical celebration of place, the children of Mornington Island explore their home in words and pictures.’ Sure to be considered as another outstanding book by these authors.
