Cheeky dogs, slippery snakes and crocodiles with big smiles join Anna in this collection of lively illustrated poems. With warmth and respect, we’re taken into the children’s lives as they camp under the stars, go hunting for tucker and play footy in the dust.
Anna the Goanna provides rare insight into the richly textured lives of contemporary Indigenous children. The poems are rhythmic and memorable, with a jaunty beat. They’re designed specially for school performances and presentations.
Recommended Ages 3-6 years
