Our customer reviews

Marsden and Tan have brilliantly portrayed the true history of Australia in this beautiful and thought provoking book. It is not meant to have a happy ending as we still have a long way to mend the hurts and damage done but this book will help the process. The illustrations are extraordinary and I will be sharing this book with my students as well as my family. A winner of many book awards and one that could mirror what has happened in many other countries, not just more
