Author Biography - Nada Wheatley

This book is a unique collaboration involving the staff and students of Papunya School, working together with children's writer Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle. Combining many voices and many hands, it was originally produced as a resource to be used for the Papunya School Curriculum...'We want to see the children, after being educated at Papunya School, coming out like honey ants full of honey - nice and healthy honey - not poison inside. We want to see the children learning both ways, and coming out bright orange and yellow together, like honey ants.' (Linda Kapunani Allen)..Nadia Wheatley is one of Australia's most highly respected writers for children and teenagers. Ken Searle is an artist and illustrator.
