Booktopia

Summary

From pizza shop to bora ground, here is a joyous celebration of food, dance and cultural understanding.

When three young boys go to a pizza parlour and meet an Aboriginal chef who can speak Italian and make a deadly pizza, they're in for a surprise!

All you fellas watching, come up, join in, warrima. Clap your hands, little ones. Stamp your feet, nannas. Get down and dance, you smart young things, mummas and daddas. Let's get the whole town dancing!

Boori Monty Pryor is a storyteller, dancer, writer and educator. Jan Ormerod is an internationally acclaimed picture-book author and illustrator. This glorious book is the first one they have cooked up together. Shake a Leg evolved from pictures of his family dancing, which Boori showed Jan Ormerod, sparking a long and rewarding collaboration between him and Jan.

Recommended for ages 6-10+ years.
