Once There Was A Boy

Author(s): Dub Leffler (Illustrator)

Aboriginal Picture Books

The disarmingly sweet, simple language in this whimsical children s picture book belies an emotional depth that allows the author to reach out to both the young, and the young at heart. This stunning picture book is transformed into a gently touching grown-up story by the use of sophisticated allegorical elements, such as the heart as love or friendship and the sapotes as forbidden fruit."
