AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book is dedicated to the memory of Kerry Clarkson, the much loved Indigenous Library Resource Officer who coordinated this project and died suddenly, before it was finished. Early in 2010 supported by RADF funds the Librarians and Black Ink Press worked with a group of secondary students who came to the Thuringowa library after school every Friday. Encouraged by several Indigenous writers and illustrators, and resourced by Black Ink Press coordinator Jeanie Adams, these young people each developed a story they wanted to tell young readers. From a simple storyboard grew a manuscript and a series of bright, lively illustrations. Later they continued at the Black Ink Press office. The stories told are different but all reflect their own lives. These are authentic young Indigenous voices communicating to the young readers of Australia.'
