Jarrampa are yabbies - they are very tasty to eat but a challenge to catch because of those claws. One old woman had a clever way of catching them - she put meat between her toes before putting her feet into the billabong. When the crabs started nibbling at the meat, she quickly wrapped her feet and the jarrampa in a cloth, then emptied the jarrampa into a bucket. Later the whole family would gather around the campfire to share in a delicious meal of yabbies.

This bilingual book - in Walmajarri and English - was produced in a workshop with ILF ambassador Alison Lester.

About the author and illustrators: Marshia Cook lives in Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia with her family. This is her first book but she has more planned, more books in her language of which there are currently so few. Tamua Nuggett and Cazarus Baker are her children.
