    1. This legend comes from the Wongutha people in Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. Like in other stories there is a chasing theme and one of the sisters falling behind. I loved that at the end of the book the author explained how to pronounce correctly several of the Aboriginal names used in the book.

    2. I recommend this book to be read and used in the classroom over the beginning of the upper primary years. Not only because of a case study by (Hill, Colbung and Glover 2011) that referred to the choices of young aboriginal children and stories but because Australian Aboriginal children are closely linked to stories about land and nature.

    3. When I was a kid, I had a few picture books with traditional Aboriginal stories. I loved them. I think that exposure to traditional Aboriginal stories is important for both Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, so that they know from a young age that their stories are valied, but also for non-Indigenous, so that they also know to value these stories. However, if you are looking for a children's book with a catchy rhythm, this is not that book.
