Written by May O'Brien and illustrated by Angela Leaney and Sue Wyatt
Four wonderful traditional teaching stories of the Wongutha people are collected together here for the first time: Barn Barn Barlala, The Kangaroos Who Wanted to be People, How Crows Became Black, Why the Emu Can’t Fly.
First published as individual titles in 1992, these stories were ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Indigenous stories in a bi-lingual text. Updated with a vibrant new design, the stories are still as fresh and appealing as ever. The collected work contains a map, explanatory note and a simple pronunciation guide for the Wongutha words used in the text.
