This engaging story tells how the possum got its scaly tail and the echidna got its spikes. Passed down from generation to generation, this is a traditional dreamtime story that features two iconic Australian animals: the scaly-tailed possum, found only in a remote part of the Kimberley, and the echidna, one of Australia's most unusual mammals.

Vividly illustrated with paintings on silk, it includes detailed descriptions and photographs. It also tells of the Wandjina, the Creator and Great Spirit, an important part of Aboriginal dreamtime stories from the Kimberley.

About the Author

Cathy Goonack is a descendant of the Wunambul people and part of the Kandiwal tribe from Ngauwudu land.
