AbstractHistoryArchive Description

‘One of the first three titles published by Penguin Australia in 1963 was Kangaroo Tales, an anthology of stories for children edited by Rosemary Wighton and illustrated by Donald Friend. Penguin became an agent for change, especially in the growth of the picture book and in encouraging the Australian voice, sometimes humorous, often forthright, in fiction for children and especially for teenagers. ’(Introduction 307)
