The Black Pot Belly

By Maree Coote
Illustrated by Maree Coote

What happens when there is no telly? What happens when there is only a pot belly stove to set a glow in the little house at the bottom of the world? And what is it about this pot belly? Something about the way it stands there in the corner of the room

In this book, making your own fun is the only option when you are far away from technology deep in the Aussie Bush. The magic pot belly stove makes his own fun, teaming up with Ned Kelly for iron-man races and adventure. This is part of a charming and very different series of Australiana. The illustrations are quirky and fresh, and the story is playful and surprising and told in rhyme. Includes: Hide-and-find fun: There are 23 Ned Kelly helmets hidden in the illustrations.
