I Saw, We Saw. But who did the seeing and what did they see?

The answer to that question is to be found by pouring over the pages of this gorgeously illustrated book. And just to make it a little more interesting, a key word is in Yolgnu Matha, the first language of the student authors of this book. Intrigued? Take a look inside and delve into the world of the Yolgnu students at Nhulunbuy Primary School.

Every page is a delight and by the end not only will you have worked out who saw what, but you will have also learned some Yolgnu Matha along the way. What better way to celebrate UNESCO's Year of Indigenous Languages!

About the Authors

Over a series of workshops sponsored by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, indigenous students from Nhulunbuy Primary School wrote the story with the help of Ann James and Ann Haddon. The students also worked on a story with some elders of their community, a story that is written entirely in Dhangu, a Yolngu Matha language. Ann James is an ILF ambassador and award-winning illustrator of many books, including The Midnight Feast, The Way I Love You, Shutting the Chooks In and Lucy Goosey.

Ann Haddon is a former teacher librarian and is actively involved in children's literature. Ann James and Ann Haddon established Books Illustrated in 1988 to showcase and promote the work of Australian illustrators.
