Crow and the Waterhole

Written by Ambelin Kwaymullina


There was once a crow who lived in a tree by a waterhole. Each morning, she stared into the water, and saw another crow staring back. Crow thought Crow-in-the-waterhole was the most wonderful bird she had ever seen.

Crow and the Waterhole is an inspiring and uplifting picture book for younger readers.
