T.A.G. Hungerford's highly acclaimed, bestselling autobiographical short stories recount his childhood in semi-rural suburbia in the 1920s and 1930s. Bird-nesting and school days, crabbing and swimming in the Swan River, Chinese market gardens and the old corner store are all brought to life through the eyes of an inquisitive, adventurous boy.
