In this fun Aboriginal Dreaming story, children learn how Mother Yonga Kangaroo got her pouch, and the importance of taking the time to help.

About the Authors

Rhonda Collard-Spratt and Jacki Ferro first teamed up to write Aunty Rhonda's life story, Alice's Daughter: Lost mission Child (AIATSIS 2017). Through many fun adventures, they have become great friends. During the 2020 pandemic, they began writing stories based on Aboriginal teachings.

Rhonda and Jacki want to give all children hope and joy, keep the Dreaming alive, and help strengthen Aboriginal children's connection to culture and Country. Born in Carnarvon, Western Australia, Aunty Rhonda Collard-Spratt, or Aunty Curlew, is a strong Yamatji-Noongar woman, and a respected representative of the Stolen Generations.

Aunty Rhonda lives by the bush in Ipswich, Queensland. When not telling yarns or singing songs, you can find Aunty in her backyard painting, or creating bush jewellery, and calling out to the magpies and kookaburras.

Jacki, or Dragonfly Girl, writes and edits life stories in her home among the trees in Brisbane. When not at her laptop, you'll find Jacki out dancing Zumba, singing with her friends, or enjoying time with her husband Vito, and their two wonderful children, Luca and Francesca.
