The Lost Girl

The girl had lost her way. She had wandered away from the Mothers, the Aunties and the Grandmothers, from the Fathers and the Uncles and the Grandfathers. Who will show her the way home?

The Lost Girl depicts the unique and unbreakable bond between Indigenous Australians and the natural environment as Mother Nature helps a lost girl stay safe and secure and find her way back to her family.

With simple and poetic words from author Ambelin Kwaymullina, and richly detailed illustrations depicting the natural environment by Leanne Tobin, this beautiful story, gently told by Lille Madden, celebrates Australian Indigenous culture, the protective and healing powers of Nature and the importance of story and family.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
