From an extraordinary novelist and an award-winning illustrator comes this lyrical and unforgettable story about a boy and the untameable wildness of a hand-reared joey.

This is a story about a boy called Pender and a kangaroo called Brindabella, about how they became friends, and all the things that happened to them because of it.

Pender and his father live in an old house made of honey-coloured stone in the bush by the river, with only the company of his father's paintings and the loyal dog, Billy-Bob. Then, on one winter morning, a gunshot amongst the trees changes everything.

When Pender rescues Brindabella from the pouch of her murdered mother, an unusual friendship blossoms between the lonely boy and the orphaned joey. But Brindabella is no ordinary kangaroo. And though Pender has saved her life, the untameable wildness of the bush--and freedom--call to her...

Lyrical and unforgettable, Brindabella explores the brutal beauty of the Australian bush.

About the Author

Ursula Dubosarsky is widely regarded as one of the most talented and original writers in Australia today. Her work ranges from multi-award-winning novels for older readers, like the 2012 CBCA shortlisted The Golden Day, to her equally acclaimed work for younger readers, including picture books with Andrew Joyner such as The Terrible Plop and series fiction such as The Cryptic Casebook of Coco Carlomagno (and Alberta) (illustrated by Terry Denton).

Andrew Joyner is an award-winning illustrator based in Strathalbyn, South Australia. His first picture book The Terrible Plop, written by Ursula Dubosarsky, was published in 2009. Since then, Andrew has illustrated many more picture books to high acclaim, including Too Many Elephants in this House (also by Ursula Dubosarsky) and The Swap, written by Jan Ormerod.
