Numbat has two hearts—one made of stone and one made of feather. His stone heart makes him strong and powerful, while his feather heart makes him soft and gentle. When having more than one heart becomes troublesome for him, Numbat feels he must choose which one to keep. After evaluating the pros and cons of each heart, Numbat discovers that the best option is to keep both hearts so that he will be both kind and strong. Ambelin Kwaymullina is an Indigenous writer and illustrator from Western Australia and the author and illustrator of The Crow and the Waterhole. Ezekiel Kwaymullina is an Indigenous writer from Western Australia and collaborated on Curly Saves Grandma’s House and Curly and the Fent. Their mother is acclaimed author and artist Sally Morgan.

      Comments about Two-Hearted Numbat:

      My daughter gets upset at many different situations, and I was looking for a book that would help build her resilience. This tells the tale of a numbat who must put on his feather heart in some situations, and a stone heart in others, in order to cope with the different encounters in the day. I can now say to my daughter "put on your stone heart!" if she's "crying over spilled milk".
