From traditional Indigenous teaching stories to stories based on the author's childhood at Mount Margaret Mission, Wongutha Tales is a unique collection bringing together May O'Brien's wonderful work for the first time. First published as individual titles in 1992, May O'Brien's stories were ground-breaking publications, presenting traditional Indigenous stories in a bilingual text and giving a unique insight into learning English as a second language from a First Nations perspective. Classic tales such as How Crows Became Black and Why the Emu Can't Fly are still as fresh and appealing as ever for a new generation of junior readers. Plus May's simple pronunciation guide for Wongutha words are perfect learning activities for the classroom.
