Richard Pritchard and Jordan Gould
Allen & Unwin Rrp $15.99
This is a fabulous concept! An Indigenous fantasy adventure (it will be a series of books) aimed at the 8-14 age group.
Richard co-author and illustrator is an Indigenous Pacific Islander and Jordan is an Indigenous Australian and both live in Warrnambool, Victoria.
The main character, Wylah is a Peek Whurrong girl from the Maar Nation. She’s funny, smart and as much a warrior as a man.
It’s great to see Indigenous culture being shared for all kids to enjoy. They plan more books in the series as they do have 40,000 years of stories to tell!
