Life for the Yolnu students who live near or around Nhulunbuy, a small town in north-east Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, revolves around the sea, whether it be hunting, fishing or playing. There's always something to see and do and this has been the inspiration for this stunningly illustrated book. The spreads follow the theme of 'I saw ... We saw...' but there's plenty more to see on each page as readers will discover.

Over a series of workshops sponsored by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, indigenous students from Nhulunbuy Primary School wrote the story with the help of Ann James and Ann Haddon. The students also worked on a story with some elders of their community, a story that is written entirely in Dhangu, a Yolngu Matha language. Ann James is an ILF ambassador and award-winning illustrator of many books, including The Midnight Feast, The Way I Love You, Shutting the Chooks In and Lucy Goosey. Ann Haddon is a former teacher librarian and is actively involved in children's literature. Ann James and Ann Haddon established Books Illustrated in 1988 to showcase and promote the work of Australian illustrators.
