Set on Groote Eylandt, this beautiful book invites children to look for animals in different habitats throughout the course of one day.
Yirruwa yirrilikenuma-langwa, amiyembena yirrirringka yirruwa? When we go walkabout, what do we see?
Up in a tree there is something flapping its wings at us. Duwedirra! Cockatoo! Down in the river we see something staring at us. Dingarrbiya! Crocodile!
Back home there is someone waiting for us. Dungkwarrika! Grandma!
A beautiful story for the very young that brings to vivid life the unique world of Groote Eylandt.
