Stories from the Billabong Paperback

Illustrated by Francis Firebrace



From the author of Walkabout come ten of Australia's ancient aboriginal legends, authentically and elegantly retold.

Here you can discover how Great Mother Snake created and peopled the world with plants and creatures, what makes Frogs croak, why Kangaroo has a pouch, and just what it is that makes Platypus so special.

The illustrations are by the aboriginal artist and storyteller Francis Firebrace, whose distinctive, colourful work is known throughout Australia and beyond.
