Blueback: Australian Children's Classics




From one of Australia's best-loved authors, Tim Winton, comes this achingly beautiful story about family, belonging and living a life in tune with the environment.

The final volume in the iconic Penguin Australian Children's Classics series, Blueback is a deceptively simple allegory about a boy who matures through fortitude, and finds wisdom by living in harmony with all forms of life. A beautiful distillation of Winton's art and concerns.
