Monster Party

By the children from Rawa with Alison Lester and Jan Godwin, Jeremiah Lubin, Mikaela Whyoulter, Samantha Burton, Anya Rogers and Emelda Biljabu
Magabala Books 2018

This delightful picture book is the product of a project initiated by the Association of Independent School WA.

Rawa School is located on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert at Punmu in the Pilbara Region, home of the Martu people  – it is one of the most remote of the AISWA schools

Jane Godwin worked with the students to create stories, real and imagined. Alison Lester showed the students how to produce the colourful pictures in this book using a variety of mediums. Monster Party reflects the culture of the Punmu community and the love of story-telling.

Published by Magabla Books, Monster Party is available at bookstores everywhere and through the website – though we understand the first print run is sold out at the publisher’s site.
