This book is based on a story told by Daisy Utemorrah of the Worora people to Aboriginal children living in Derby, Western Australia. The illustrations are adapted from their paintings of her story.

I kept the stories till I was old enough to tell children. We want to share our stories with all children so they learn what Aborigines used to do.'
