The Unlikely Story of Bennelong and Phillip

The Unlikely Story of Bennelong and Phillip

$19.95

The Unlikely Story of Bennelong and Phillip tells the extraordinary story about the friendship between Captain Arthur Phillip and the Aboriginal, Bennelong, and is one of Australia’s most important and intriguing stories, yet remains largely unknown.

The background of first settlement in Australia (when the first fleet arrived) heightens the polarity between the two worlds of these two people – traditional Aboriginal culture and values versus European culture and values. The book has been beautifully written by Michael Sedunary complimented with the extraordinary artwork by celebrated Australian ceramic artist, Bern Emmerichs.

Age range 6 to 9

Shortlisted for the 2016 West Australian Young Readers’ Book Award
