Blueback by Tim Winton

Written primarily for children, but adults will also enjoy this beautiful little book, with its exquisite illustrations of sea flora and fauna by Allison Colpoys.

This is a bluebaci modern Australian classic for every child and adult. But even in his seedy flat, ducking the neighbours, he’s not safe from entanglement. It’s a desperate, daring plan, to rescue two kids, Jamal and Bibi, from a desert detention centre. She grows vegetables and eats fish. I have just handed the paper version to reading friend and had to read it again before Oh what a beautiful little tale. Jan 02, Kerri Green rated it liked it.

That Deadman Dance By: Then a boy called Menzies makes her an offer she can’t refuse, and they set off on a job of their own. John Steinbeck Narrated by: An incredibly poignant story that reminds us to take care of our environment from an author who leads by example. He is now one of Australia’s most esteemed novelists, writing for both adults and children.

The default value for Tim Winton is “amazing”. I picked this up as it’s part of the Penguin Australian Children’s Classics series which I adore and even though I had not actually heard of this particular Tim Winton book before, it is so deserving as being part of this collection.

Seriously, with Winton, you cannot lose. Blueback is an achingly beautiful story about family, belonging, and living a life in tune with the environment, from Tim Winton, one of Australia’s best-loved authors. Nov 20, Ashley rated it it was ok.
