You probably know the name Sally Morgan from her extraordinarily successful autobiography, My Place, a landmark work of indigenous literature which deservedly held its place on the Australian high school curriculum for many, many years.

But did you know that Sally Morgan is also an illustrator?

Boy, is she a brilliant illustrator.

The pictures in Where is Galah are some of the brightest and most eye-catching I have ever seen in a children’s picture book. A child could not fail to be engaged by them.

It’s a gorgeous introduction for littlies to indigenous-style art, and includes an easy-to-follow narrative about ‘Dingo’, as he searches for ‘Galah’.

IMG_20150528_091827Toddlers and babies will love the rhyme and repetition of the text – and the onomatopoeic sounds are perfect for the non-verbal child.

As a picture book, I cannot fault it, and I can see many pre-schools making great use of this book in their curriculum.
