Meet 11-year-old Bindi. She's not really into maths but loves art class and playing hockey. Her absolute favourite thing is adventuring outside with friends or her horse, Nell.
A new year starts like normal ― school, family, hockey, dancing. But it doesn't go to plan: There's a big art assignment, a drought, a broken wrist and the biggest bushfires her town has ever seen.
Bindi is a verse novel for mid-upper primary students. Written 'for those who plant trees', Bindi explores climate, bush fires, and healing from the point of view of 11-year-old Bindi and her friends on Gundungurra Country (south-eastern New South Wales).
Winner of the inaugural WA Premier’s Daisy Utemorrah Award
