A stunning early childhood picture book by Sally Morgan, illustrated by YolÅ‹u artist Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr
Little Bird's Day is a simple, universal story of a day in the life of Little Bird as she sings the world alive, flies with Cloud, travels with Wind, nestles with Moon and dreams of flying among the stars. Sally Morgan's gentle, poetic text and Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr's sensitive artwork combine to make this a beautiful and distinctive publication. Bringing to life Little Bird's journey, Johnny infuses his illustrations with his fine-art aesthetic, traditional motifs and a quirky sense of humour.
Little Bird's Day is the exquisite first outcome of Magabala's Kestin Indigenous Illustrator Award. Funded by the Kestin Family Foundation, the aim of the award is to mentor Indigenous artists or emerging illustrators in the production of children's picture books.
