Marngrook by Titta Secombe; Illustrated by Grace Fielding
Based on the sometimes controversial theory of how Australian Rules Football developed from ‘marngrook’, a ball game played by Aboriginal people in north west Victoria more than 150 years ago. The story takes place at the foot of Duwul, the highest mountain in the spectacular Grampians region of north west Victoria and the traditional country of the Djab-Wurrung and Jardwadjali clans. When Wawi notices that the children only have old toys to play with, he goes for a walk to see what he can find.
