AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is the story of Gidigil the Moon, who tricked the people into dancing then stole their food and ran away with the seven beautiful sisters to Lingele, where his whiskers can still be seen in the cliff face today. The way the story is told in this book is a blend of the versions told by Jackson Jacob, Kenneth Jacob, Dick Roughsey, Gully Peters and Cyril Moon.' (Source: Online)
