Book Description

BOORI MONTY PRYOR: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2012-13..'I wake with a start. The doorknob turns. It's him. The Hairyman.'..There's a bad spirit in our house. He's as ugly as ugly gets and he stinks. You touch this kind of Hairyman and you lose your voice, or choke to death...It's hard to sleep when a hairy wrinkly old hand might grab you in the night. And in the day you've got to watch yourself. It can be rough. Words come yelling at you that hurt...Alive with humour, My Girragundji is the vivid story of a boy growing up between two worlds. With the little green tree frog as a friend, the bullies at school don't seem so big anymore. And Girragundji gives him the courage to face his fears.

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)

More than a love story, this is a bold, confronting book about friendship, love, sex and identity at the heart of Australia, where black and white, bush and city collide. Ages 16+.

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.
