The illustrations are adapted from original paintings done by the children for their story. Abie Jangala said in 'Stories from Lajamanu', "Since we came here, Lajamanu has changed a lot. Children have been born here and that means their Dreaming place is here. Our law and our ceremonies are still important to us; it is the law of Walyajarra, the people who lived and died thousands of years ago, and we cannot change that."
