This is her second book about the bilby.
Bilbies live out in the bush not so far from where she taught at some remote schools. The purchase of chocolate bilbies rather than rabbits at Easter time will help to publicise the
plight of this cute, endangered animal.Napangardi's Bush Tucker Walk
is a book in which she has drawn on her rich experiences living and working in remote locations of the Territory.
The author taught at Mungkarta School from 2002 until 2006 where she saw some of the traditional food gathering. Students often brought bush tucker to school.
It is hoped that this story will contribute to the maintenance of Indigenous culture and language in the Barkly region.
The Indigenous words for the animals and bushtucker are Alywarre, the language of Mungkarta and some other places in the NT.Baby Bilby and the Wildcat
is inspired by the unique landscapes, animals and the traditional food gathering and hunting of the Indigenous people of the Territory.About the Illustrator
