Another simple, universal story from acclaimed WA First Nations storyteller Sally Morgan collaborating with artist Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr from Arnhem Land in the NT — this time a beautifully illustrated celebration of the life of the river.

The River takes the reader on a journey of what their eyes can see and their ears can hear. See green ants crawling, hear frogs croaking, a goanna running, a fish splashing… truly delightful.
