Benny Bungarra’s Big Bush Clean-Up

Author: Sally Morgan, Illust. Ambelin Kwaymullina

Publisher: Magabala Books

Published: June 2018

Mother-daughter duo Sally Morgan and Ambelin Kwaymullina continue their creative collaboration in this environmentally themed picture book, which has much to offer young readers. Vibrant illustrations and rhythmic, onomatopoeic language tell the tale of Benny Bungarra, a goanna whose fun in the sun is interrupted when he finds his bush friends endangered by waste left behind by humans. Ingenuity and teamwork are front and centre as Benny first rescues his friends, then enlists their help to tackle the bigger picture. Packed with child appeal, this timely story gently underscores the crucial “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle” message, emphasising the importance – and fun! – of the whole community working together for change.
