AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Our island lies beneath a big blue sky,

surrounded by the turquoise sea.

Turtles glide through the clear salt water,

and dugongs graze on banks of seagrass.

'In this lyrical celebration of place, the children of Mornington Island explore their home in words and pictures. This is a collaboration with much-loved children's picture-book creators authors Alison Lester and Elizabeth Honey.

'All royalties from Our Island and one dollar from the sale of each copy will be donated to Mornington Island State School to fund art projects in the community.' (Publication summary)
