AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Imagine being at a camp in the Great Victorian Desert in Western Australia with two of Australia's best-loved author/illustrators and working with them to produce your very own illustrated story. Ten lucky kids had just such an opportunity. In June 2015, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation brought together Sally Morgan and Ann James, and kids from Tjuntjuntjara, Mt Margaret, Menzies and Melbourne for a 5-day writing and illustrating camp on Spinifex Country.

'The illustrated stories they produced at the camp were so special we've put them together in this book for all to read and enjoy. In this stunning collection you'll encounter stories of friendship and loyalty, experiments that go badly wrong, a battle over a dinosaur bone, and a mysterious bowl. Then there's a story about a very scary goanna...' (Publication summary)
