AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When we go walkabout, what do we see? Up in a tree there is something flapping its wings at us. Duwedirra! Cockatoo! Down in the river we see something staring at us. Dingarrbiya! Crocodile! Back home there is someone waiting for us ... Dungkwarrika! Grandma! A beautiful story for the very young that brings to vivid life the unique world of Groote Eylandt.' (Source: Publishers website)

Works about this Work

Children's Books in Translation Robin Morrow , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Magpies : Talking about Books for Children , November vol. 32 no. 5 2017; (p. 4-6)

'If we care about the role of reading in opening up young minds to new ideas and viewpoints, surely it is vital to have access to books from other languages and cultures. Some of the books firmly established on our shelves spring to mind ; Pippi Longstocking, Finn Family Moomintroll, the Neverending Story, The Little Prince. But a closer look at titles bought and borrowed by young Australian Readers today confirms two worries that I brought to the topic ; that the proportion of translated books is till small, and that very few of them have been translated here in Australia.'
