Book Description

BOORI MONTY PRYOR: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2012-13..'The Binna Binna man is a big fulla and he stinks like a goat. He can be good and heal you, but if you poke fun at him then you can get into big trouble, like die.'..In Binna Binna country you should watch where you go, even on a night when life is so stuffed up that nothing matters any more. You go wandering too far and you might come face to face with your worst nightmare - the Binna Binna man...Filled with laughter and affection, this is the powerful story of a boy who is learning that if you forget where you come from you get weak. That to stay strong you must listen to the old people with your eyes and your ears - and your heart. A companion to My Girragundji.

Maybe Tomorrow by Meme McDonald Maybe Tomorrow, Paperback (January 2010)

Boori Monty Pryor's career path has taken him from the Aboriginal fringe camps of his birth to the runway, the catwalk, the basketball court, the DJ console, and now to performance and story-telling around the country. Boori leads you along the paths he has travelled, while sharing the story of his life, his pain and his hopes.

Love Like Water by Meme McDonald Love Like Water, Paperback (April 2008)

Flytrap by Meme McDonald Flytrap, Paperback (May 2002)

Nancy is worried. She's told her teacher she has a Venus Flytrap, but she doesn't, and now Miss Susan wants her to bring it in to show the class. It wasn't really a lie, it was more like...a wish. Now she needs to work out something of her own to share with her class.

Njunjul the Sun by Meme McDonald Njunjul the Sun, Paperback (March 2002)

A 16-year-old Aboriginal boy leaves his family and home for the big city, and as he struggles to make sense of his experience he realises that he must have the knowledge of his own people and culture in order to know who he is, and to find his direction.
