ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- People have come to Australia by boat for centuries, and this book tells the stories of some of those immigrants. Starting with Anak 50 000 years ago, the book progresses through the early and mid 1700s, the late 1780s, early and mid 1800s, decades of the 1900s and ends with Abdul in early 2000s. The children sail on various ships - as traders, explorers, convicts, settlers, cameleers, gold-diggers, orphans, settlers and refugees. Told through the eyes of children who do not know what awaits, and who feel trepidation and uncertainty. Expressive illustrations accompany the text. Mid-to-late primary age readers. Lindy Jones


Every journey is perilous, every situation heartbreaking. Every refugee is a person forced by famine or war or fear to leave their home, their families, their friends and all they know. Children have travelled on the waves of migration to the shores of Australia for tens of thousands of years. This book tells some of their stories.

Waves is a narrative non-fiction book about the waves of migration to the shores of Australia.
