The Naked Boy and the Crocodile: Stories by Children from Remote Indigenous Communities, Edited by Andy Griffiths
2 The Naked Boy and the Crocodile: Stories by Children from Remote Indigenous Communities
Edited by Andy Griffiths Australia Pan 2011 1742610579 / 9781742610573 Soft cover New Book 18.3 x 17.1 x 0.7 cm 
In the past few years as an ILF ambassador, Andy Griffiths has travelled around Australia with other members of the Australian book industry to conduct writing workshops with students in remote communities. The students were given small blank "books" and invited to fill these books - using both picture and words - with a story based on their own lives. These stories could be true or fictional or a mixture of both. They could be dramatic, funny or simply about an activity they love. The thirteen stories included in this book tell tales of playing with friends, riding motorbikes, picking berries, hunting for emu eggs and wild pigs, terrifying turkeys and angry mamus. The ILF was set up to help get desperately needed books and literary resources into remote indigenous communities. But as this book so clearly shows, sharing stories is a two-way street. About the Author: Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are a creative partnership that began with Just Tricking! in 1997 and now extends to six Just! books and more than a million copies sold, the award-winning The Bad Book and the off-the-wall success of The Cat on the Mat is Flat and The Big Fat Cow that Goes Kapow. They are now published all over the world including the US where Andy's Bum books have made the New York Times bestseller lists.
