My Culture and Me by Gregg Dreise

My Culture and Me is a joyful celebration of Australia's First Nations, written and illustrated by Gregg Dreise who is from the Kamilaroi and Euahlayi peoples in south-west Queensland and north-west New South Wales. He grew up in a large family full of music, storytelling, culture and art. Gregg is a talented artist and musician, as comfortable with a paintbrush, as he is on the guitar and didgeridoo.
