These books are confidently aimed at young readers, and all have an integrity and joyful rhythm that will resonate with all beginner readers. Perfect for shared reading and exploring the uniquely Australian landscape and its people, all titles have a dramatic visual impact and social message.

The Barramundi Tale which follows the journey of Norman the young fish is a fine example of lucid storytelling. Hey Brother captures in the simplest of prose the particular vernacular of the brothers. All titles highly recommended.
