"Children's Book Council of Australia - Short Listed Book"-Cover.
When Ian Abdulla was a young boy growing up along the Murray River, bush tucker was plentiful, and everyone was expected to help feed the family. With his brothers and sisters he picked quandongs for pies and caught catfish for curry soup. And when all else failed, Ian would be sent to buy sheep heads from the butcher. All the fun (and the hardship) is recorded here in story and picture.
