This innovative children’s book looks at the many animals depicted in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
And A Kangaroo Too provides a name of each animal both in English and in the Aboriginal language of the artist.
Magpie geese (gurrumatji), a goanna (carda), saltwater crocodiles (baru), an emu (gugaamgan), possums (marrngu), sharks (balangu) and, of course, a kangaroo (wambuyn) are among the animals that can be found in the 26 works of art.
All works illustrated are from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collection of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
