Do you have a story? Everyone has a story to tell. Sometimes many stories. What's Your Story? is a beautiful book about friendship.
The backdrop is the First Settlement and it describes the friendship of a little orphan boy from England, Leonard and his friendship with a little Aboriginal girl called Milba.
Leonard is intrigued by Australia's fauna as it is completely different to anything Leonard had previously seen, and it is with this, the story develops. What's Your Story? uses ceramic artwork created from the renowned and celebrated Australian artist Bern Emmerichs and written by Melbourne writer Rose Giannone.

“There is much for young readers to pour over, wonder and discuss, making this picture book a valuable visual depiction of the settlement at Sydney and a starting point for discussion. At the same time the book provides a platform for the exploration of the concept of history writ both large and familial, and including multiple viewpoints”. Magpies Magazine
