Bawoo Stories is a collection of four wonderful, traditional teaching stories of the Aboriginal Wongutha people Barn Barn Barlala, The Kangaroos Who Wanted to Be People, How Crows Became Black, and Why the Emu Can't Fly. First published as individual titles in 1992, these stories were seen as ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Indigenous stories. Updated with a vibrant new design, the stories are still as fresh and appealing as ever. This collection also contains a map, explanatory notes, and a simple pronunciation guide for the Wongutha words used in the text. (ages 7-12)
