AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Sisi escapes the watchful eyes of her elders and dives into a waterhole, she surfaces in an unfamiliar place and gets lost. A boy who is out collecting quandong fruit offers to lead her home. He disappears, but a cassowary encourages Sisi to climb on his back and then carries her home.' (Libraries Australia record).
