Don't Wake the Dingo! by Sally Morgan

Thu 11 April 2019

Seeking shelter from a wild storm, a few sodden animals sneak anxiously past sleeping Dingo in his den...but what will happen when he wakes up?

Filled with Aussie animals, and fun rhymes, this is a sweet story about loneliness and friendship written by award-winning Australian First Nations author and illustrator Sally Morgan, who is from the Palku and Nyamal peoples of the Pilbara in Western Australia.

Illustrator Sarah Boese perfectly captures the positions and expressions of dreaming Dingo, and the anxious animals as they creep into his cave. Sarah is a graphic designer and mural artist based in Adelaide. Go to her website to check out more of her work.
