What's Your Story?
What's Your Story? is a beautiful children's book set against the backdrop of the First Settlement of Australia.
It describes the friendship of a little orphan boy from England, Leonard, and the friendship he strikes with a little Aboriginal girl called Milba.
Leonard and Milba are mesmerised by the peculiarity of each others' worlds, and it is with this, the story develops.
Rose Giannone is a debut children's author.
Bern Emmerichs is an artist and a children's book illustrator.
There is much for young readers to pour over, wonder and discuss, making this picture book a valuable visual depiction of the settlement at Sydney and a starting point for discussion. At the same time the book provides a platform for the exploration of the concept of history writ both large and familial, and including multiple viewpoints - Magpies Magazine
