Front Cover
Linsay Knight, Clare Scott-Mitchell, Kathlyn Griffith
Random House Australia, 2002 - Australia - 118 pages
This collection of Australian poems was written by both adults and children, with illustrations by Gregory Rogers. The poems in this collection make us think about what life in Australia is like: life before the Europeans; life in the early years of European settlement and what it is like to live here now. Many of the poems capture strong feelings, others tell a story or a joke, others leave us wondering.
