The Australia Book

By Eve Pownall

A classic piece of Australian publishing history, which has been lovingly brought back to life by the team from Black Dog Books.

When The Australia Book won the 1952 Children’s Book of the Year Award, it was described as ‘one of the most beautiful and original books ever published for children in Australia - and that remains as true today as it was then.

  • A beautiful full-scale facsimile edition; with a foreword by Maurice Saxby
  • An Australian classic.
  • Welcomed by literacy experts, teachers, librarians, historians, and parents and grandparents who treasured it as children.
