Age range 5+ The hawker's wagon jingled and jangled as it came down the track ...

Annie and Arthur have been eagerly awaiting Bhagwan Singh's next visit. What wondrous things will he have in his cart this time, among the silk and soap, spices and shirts?

As the hawker makes his camp for the night, the children savour spun sugar and food from the Punjab, discovering the secret star anise.

A gentle story about embracing different traditions, based on the stories of Sikh hawkers in Australia in the late 1800s.
