Rajah Street

By Myo Yim
Illustrated by Myo Yim

Junya thinks Wednesdays are the best days, because that is when the garbage trucks come. A sweet and whimsical story from a child’s perspective about the busy world outside his window.

Junya loves to sit at his window and watch the goings-on in Rajah Street. He watches the clouds passing overhead, kookaburras singing and skateboard riders zipping by. Today he is waiting for Wednesday. Wednesday is when the garbage trucks come, and garbage trucks are his favourite. Imaginative illustrations help capture the world through a three-year-old’s perspective in this quirky slice-of-life story.

  • This simple story about life on a particular street, shows how children learn important lessons through the routine happenings that occur on different days of the week.
  • Introducing a new voice to the local picture book scene. Myo Yim's unusual perspective of everyday Australian life provides readers with a glimpse of her unique world view.
  • A celebration of the power of the imagination and the way it can make sense of the unknown and bring joy to our lives.
