Roald Dahl Narrated by: Beautifully crafted, and as tender as they are confronting, these elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through. This is a superb modern Australian classic for every child and adult.

Bolinda Bu Pty Ltd. Want to Read saving…. Enthralled by the wonderful experi Down through the centuries the Jackson family had always earned their living from the sea, from the old days of whaling and fishing, to the modern times of abalone harvesting. Throughout his life the boy’s relationship with the fish and the sea shape everything he does. The work is not a heavyweight but it is a quick and pleasant read.

A story of friendship, courage and a bit of crime.
