How Frogmouth Found her Home

Written by Ambelin Kwaymullina


Frogmouth isn’t like the other birds. She doesn’t want to live in the trees. Frogmouth is in search of something more. Frogmouth travels the land hunting for a new nesting place, but nothing feels right. On her way, she helps other animals find their true homes, but still she searches. Only when she meets Moon and hears his intriguing offer can she finally find her true home.

’Kwaymullina’s intriguing story is complemented by her masterful artwork, with bush creatures and landscapes rendered in a vividly coloured palette …’ Sydney’s Child

‘The beautiful illustrations lift this heartwarming story about helping others and finding a home, and children will enjoy the colourful parade of Australian fauna.’ Herald Sun

‘My favourite part is when Frogmouth helps Blue-tongue Lizard, Freshwater Crocodile and Loggerhead Turtle to find where they belong.’ Hugh McLeod, Year 2, Sun Herald

‘The recognisable colours and techniques of Kwaymullina’s illustrations are always exceptional and this addition to her repertoire is no exception.’ Magpies
