Waltzing Matilda by A.B. (Banjo) Paterson

Book Description

Beautifully illustrated by Desmond Digby, here is a new edition of Australia's most famous song. Beautifully illustrated children's paperback by much loved Australian Poet A.B Paterson . through a light lyrical verse, comes to life the story of a swagman who steals a sheep or 'jumbuck', and his ensuing police chase. Desmond Digby's painterly style of illustration with rustic colours, and a rugged looking swagman encapsulate the poet's Australian bush perfectly. the song was a collaboration between Christina MacPherson, who was responsible for the earliest version of the music, and Banjo Paterson, who wrote the words in 1895. As widely read today as it was 100 years ago, this is a must for all Australian children. Ages 4+

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » In this beautiful picture book from Australia, Desmond Digby gives a softly luminous outback setting and a good deal of expressive vitality to the old rhyme about the swagman in the Billabong who stows a jumbuck in his tuckerbag, then drowns himself trying to escape the police: "And his ghost may be heard as it sings in the Billabong, 'Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?'" A glossary is appended but hardly needed as the pictures bring out not only what's meant by the words but also what's been hiding there between the lines all along. Fair dinkum. (Kirkus Reviews)
