AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A collection of twenty traditional tales from the Australian Aborigines, explaining how the world began and what followed.

To all the children in my life.

'Sally Morgan writes and illustrates some of her best short stories in this amusing and entertaining compilation.'

'Have you ever wished your brother was a fish? Or screamed so loud that the hairs of a caterpillar fell off? These are just some of the fun stories written and illustrated by Sally Morgan. The witty stories, with a folktale feel, are based around a host of characters which are Australian animals, non-native animals, spirits, planets, the sun and moon, and humans.
