Description

From Monday to Saturday, Savannah and her family go looking for bush tucker. The others all find fabulous food, while Savannah only finds bits of junk. But Savannah is imaginative, and creates a barramundi sculpture out of the things she has collected. On Sunday, she catches a real live barramundi! Ages 3+.

Author description

Australia for six years. The resilience, independence and joy of the children she has taught there inspired this text. Prior to this adventure, she taught adults in Melbourne creative writing and worked as an editor and reviewer. Elaine Russell was born in Tingha, northern New South Wales in 1941. She spent most of her childhood on the Aboriginal mission at Lake Cargelligo. In 1993, Elaine enrolled in a visual arts course and was finally able to realise her lifelong ambition to be a painter. Her work has been displayed-and is held by-museums and galleries around the world. In the 2001 Children's Book Council of Australia Awards, her first book, A is for Aunty (ABC Books, 2000), was shortlisted for the Picture Book Award and was an Eve Pownall Honour Book.
