Posted on

Benny Bungarra comes to the rescue when Olive Python's head is stuck in a plastic bottle, Colin Crow's beak is entangled in a fishing line, and Kathy Kangaroo's paw has glass in it!

Benny Bungarra's Big Bush Clean-Up is an environmental tale for Early Childhood and Lower Primary readers showing how animals are affected by rubbish left in their habitat by humans. Ambelin Kwaymullina's illustrations are an explosion of colour and cleverly show the perils faced by our native animals.

When the animals work as a team to come up with ways to look after the bush, they decide to ask the humans to REDUCE, RECYCLE and use RUBBISH BINS. But it is Benny Bungarra who has the bright idea of a BIG BUSH CLEAN-UP so the animals can also help look after the bush.


The second book in the creative collaboration of storyteller Josie Boyle and illustrator, Fern Martins. There once lived a sad lady whose only friends were the flowers in her garden. This is the story of a sad lady who is inspired by an unusual flower in her garden to paint spots on her cups and saucers. This then extends to her kitchen, to all over her house! She is no longer sad and she paints her way into the hearts of her neighbours and her street becomes the happiest in the neighbourhood, A delightful tale of the transformative power of nature - offering a glimpse of how the natural and emotional worlds can connect in making the ordinary extraordinary.


Long ago, when my mother was a child, there was an enormous frangipani tree that grew in the town of Fkhong Fish Point. People came from all around to pick the beautiful frangipani flowers that adorned its twisted old branches.

One year, Mym wanted to enter the Flying Fish Point School fancy dress carnival but she had nothing to wear.

Faith-girl you can go as an island princess. We’ll make a lei from the old Frangipani Tree.
