Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jessy Deutsch
With all the rugged charm of the "outback," this illustrated poem carries the reader through the life of a "swagman" whose pride and spirit become legend. The characters are dramatic and the tension is palpable, and the authentic language places the tale squarely in its appropriate setting. A glossary ensures that the poem also teaches the meanings of fun-to-say words like "Billabong," "Coolabah," and "jumbuck," so that the popular song by the same name as the book can be sung with new context and understanding.
