Shake A Leg

Ever eaten a crocodile-shaped pizza? Watch out, it might bite ya!

Author Boori Monty Pryor is a master storyteller and the ideal reader for Shake A Leg - Boori's own joyous celebration of food, dance and cultural understanding.

When three hungry boys enter a pizza shop in steamy far north Queensland, they are in for a few surprises. The pizza maker might speak Italian but he's also Aboriginal. What's served up next is a slice of pizza, a milkshakeand the inspiration to get up and dance - Warrima - and shake a leg!

Illustrations by the talented Jan Ormerod transform this story into an experience that is part picture book, part graphic novel, on a journey that takes us from pizza shop to bora ground.
