An Aboriginal Story
This book is based on a story told by Mona Green, of the Jaru people, to Aboriginal children living in Halls Creek, Western Australia. The illustrations are adapted from the children's original paintings of the story. Mona Green said, "When my husband was a stockman, we used to go out to Nongra Lake to see if the cattle had enough water. I had heard the story about this giant lake, and I think that from the air it would look like a tree with roots stretching out."
Great little book with colourful illustrations!
I get that it’s a tale of how the echidna got its spikes, but not much of a fun story to tell a kid with this poor little animal getting spears thrown at it
My grandson loves the illustrations
Beautiful story and illustrations
