Synopsis

In the past few years as an ILF ambassador, Andy Griffiths has travelled around Australia with other members of the Australian book industry to conduct writing workshops with students in remote communities.The students were given small blank "books" and invited to fill these books - using both picture and words - with a story based on their own lives. These stories could be true or fictional or a mixture of both. They could be dramatic, funny or simply about an activity they love.The thirteen stories included in this book tell tales of playing with friends, riding motorbikes, picking berries, hunting for emu eggs and wild pigs, terrifying turkeys and angry mamus.The ILF was set up to help get desperately needed books and literary resources into remote indigenous communities. But as this book so clearly shows, sharing stories is a two-way street.
