But it will take a lot of work to turn Dad’s battered old bomb into the car of Annie’s dreams. Then again, hard work can sometimes make the rewards seem so much sweeter.
An illustrated first chapter book about using your imagination to make everything old, new again.
About the Waarda series
Waarda, Nyungar for talking and sharing stories and information, is an exciting children’s series by Indigenous authors. Initiated by renowned Aboriginal artist and writer Sally Morgan, the series was designed to support the literacy needs of Indigenous children in primary school, by making available to them stories written by Indigenous authors. At the same time, it introduces non-Indigenous children to the richness and depth of Aboriginal storytelling. Above all, it is a collection of fun, interesting and diverse first chapter books for new readers.
