              Daisy Tjupamtarri Ward will take you on a winter goanna hunt. In summer their tracks are easily visible, but are they in winter? Enjoy learning how to catch a goanna, and then cook it. Detailed in humorous, colourful illustrations which take the reader with a family on their hunt...ing expedition through the beautiful landscapes of the Western and Central Australian Deserts. They are helped by their very exuberant dog and his thorny devil friend. The reader has fun finding the thorny devil in every picture! Margaret Kemarre Turner OAM, Senior Arrernte Elder says of the book: I really admire this book. I think it is really good, it is easy to read. We need books like this now because we only see books for children. This is for adult people to see and learn quicker. If you want young people to read, if they don't have a very good background in English, they can see the picture. They can talk about it. From the pictures, they can hear the dog. (When dogs see a goanna, they bark.) As they are reading, they can build up a lot of language and a lot of words. That's a really good thing about it. I really want family to read and learn from this book, which is really special to us.
