Debut author and Biripi man Adam Duncan brings to life the bunyip, an animal
from First Nations mythology that holds great fascination for children.
Striking illustrations by Paul Lalo of Soymilk Studio have a unique 3D collage style.
On a starless night Little Brother leaves the safety of the campfire and is captured by the fearsome bunyip. Big Sister will need everything she has learnt about the bush and her Country to rescue Little Brother and escape the bunyip. Part Sky Country creation story, part exciting adventure tale, The Bunyip and the Stars is the first in a series of five picture books featuring stories from Australia inspired by the National Museum of Australia’s new immersive play space for children – the Tim and Gina Fairfax Discovery Centre.
