Australian picture book covers translated into Noongar Language

Books, Collaborations

Writer and Academic Cassie Lynch and I collaborated on a series of illustrations, with some much-loved Australian picture books translated into Noongar language (Wirlak), to celebrate the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Book Week 2019 and coinciding with the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages.

We reconfigured the coat of arms to feature Josephine from Josephine Wants to Dance by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, and Edwina from Edwina the Emu by Sheena Knowles and Rod Clement, proudly holding the Aboriginal Flag.
