I am the native cat, I dance everywhere. 
I hop, skip and jump.
I jump on the flat stone 
and dance and wobble my bum and hold my hips 
And then I dance again.

This remarkable book weaves together the story of Daisy Utemorrah's life with a collection of playful parables and poems. Exploring themes such as Creation, tradition, memories, family and most importantly, country, Do Not Go around the Edges imbues a simple autobiographical story with humour and depth, and will appeal to adults and children alike. Retold with love and honour, be transported to a place where time stands still... 

This book is beautifully illustrated by Broome-based Djugan artist Pat Torres.
