You and me: Our Place

On the edge of  a north Australian city where the river and mangroves meet the sea, two young boys join Uncle Tobias for a long, languid day of fishing and hunting.

Along the way they meet Old Isaac and Auntie Ruby, and listen to Uncle Tobias’s stories about the old people. 

In this warm, understated story Leonie Norrington’s rhythmic text and Dee Huxley’s lush illustration create a time and a place in which parallel worlds and cultures co-exist and children move comfortably between them.
