Tracker Tjungingji

Front Cover
IAD Press, 2012 - Aboriginal Australians - 36 pages
Tracker Tjugingji lived out bush with his family. They camped in little windbreak shelters, and Tjugingji used to sleep on the ground next to his parents. One time Tracker Tjugingji's parents decided to go to a big lake, a long way east of where they were camped... Tjugingji wanted to go too, but he didn't expect the trip to be quite such an adventure. This book also includes a CD of The Animal Song, a lively tune about kangaroos hopping, dingoes howling and big emus walking.
