Karen Manbulloo, illustrated by the Binjari Buk Mob
This is the story of Molly, a little pig who is rescued from the bush and loves Weet-Bix. She finds a happy home in the community, but is frightened of the dogs who constantly chase her!
Written in Karen’s native tongue, Moli det Bigibigi is told in Kriol with accompanying English translations. The book is based on the real-life pet pig of the Binjari community where Karen lives, found in the bush by Karen’s brother.
Full of heart, your little reader’s smile will grow, just like Molly does as she eats her favourite food.
For: Language lovers age 3+
