Blueback: Australian Childrens Classics
"BLUEBACK slipped close to them, fins rippling. His scales shone! His tail fanned. He was the colour of all their dreams."
The final volume in the iconic Penguin Australian Children's Classics series, Blueback is a deceptively simple allegory about a boy who matures through fortitude, and finds wisdom by living in harmony with all forms of life. A beautiful distillation of Winton's art and concerns.
Every so often, there comes a story so brilliant and lively and moving that it cannot be left in the past. Rediscover the magic of our country's most memorable children's books in the Penguin Australia Children's Classics series of stories too precious to leave behind.Tim Winton
