Today I would like to read a children's book where no one is dead or dying or even ill with a slight cold. Let's cheer up the children! They'll have to face the reality of Bojo soon enough.

I have a request of the parents and teachers telling their kids they can’t read graphic novels: Read some. You’ll see, I promise. There are beautiful books turning kids into lifelong readers, thoughtful humans, art lovers, and brilliant storytellers. Don’t miss out!

Dark Emu's author Bruce Pascie has released a different version of his book, more appropriate for a young audience - "giving them a chance to learn what really happened in their country, and also make them proud of such an incredible history."

Bruce Pascoe has penned a book, and now a younger readers edition of that book, that is, and will continue to be, the subject of many wonderful conversations and changes in the way we view Australian Agricultural practice and Indigenous history.
