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. She said, "I used to live with my parents in a humpy house. My Grandmother, my aunties and even my Grandpa told me stories from the Dreamtime. 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."
