Review quote

A simple book, where the movement in the illustrations matches the rhythm of the text and conveys a sense of individual freedom, community and the presense of the natural world. In these enticing pages non-Aboriginal children, even as they may be surprised by the place and its people, will recognise the fun and excitement to be found in family, play and the triumphs of growing.
