A beautiful story of how Mother Nature helps a lost girl find her way back to her family. Now in paperback!

The girl had lost her way. She had wandered away from the Mothers, the Aunties and the Grandmothers, from the Fathers and the Uncles and the Grandfathers. Who will show her the way home?

About the Author

Ambelin Kwaymullina loves reading sci-fi and fantasy books, and has wanted to write a novel since she was six years old. She comes from the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. When not writing or reading she teaches law, illustrates picture books and hangs out with her dogs. She has previously written a number of children’s books, both alone and with other members of her family.

Her first novel, The Tribe 1: The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf, was short-listed for the 2012 Aurealis Awards in both the Science Fiction and Young Adult Fiction categories.

About the Illustrator

Leanne Tobin has worked as an artist for more than three decades. She is of Dharug descent, the traditional Aboriginal people of Greater Western Sydney. Leanne is a primary teacher but works as an educator within the community and runs creative workshops with a range of Indigenous and non-Indigenous organisations, teaching local Dharug histories, stories and land care to the public.

Her artwork acknowledges her mixed ancestry (Irish, English and Aboriginal), and she uses a combination of Western and Traditional techniques infused with Aboriginal symbolism and stories. She has won many awards and in 2011 won the NSW Parliament Indigenous Art Prize. The Lost Girl is her first picture book.

Industry Reviews

This book captures the beauty and bounty of Australian flora and fauna in rich detail ... a lovely addition to the increasingly diverse body of Indigenous children's literature. * Books+Publishing *
In our over-busy, sometimes frantic world, the simplicity of The Lost Girl's story is its strength. * Magpies *
