A joyous and exuberant picture book about life in a remote community
Tell 'em how us kids like to play.
We got bikes and give each other rides.
Tell 'em about the dancing and singing,
And all the stories the old people know.
In this book, written in conjunction with children from Manyallaluk School in the Roper River region in the NT, the voices of Indigenous children sing out across the land to tell us about their life in a remote community.
Karen Briggs is a designer and illustrator whose inspiration stems from her love of animals and nature, and memories of holidays with her grandmother on the Cummeragunja Mission. She is a descendant of the Yorta Yorta people whose ancestral homeland radiates from the junction of the Goulburn and Murray Rivers in North East Victoria. Her first picture book, Kick with My Left Foot, written by Paul Seden, was published in 2014, and shortlisted for the CBCA Crichton Award in 2015. These days she illustrates from her home in the Adelaide Hills.
