Against pink skies kookaburra calls …

Acclaimed mother-and-son-team Sally Morgan and Ezekiel Kwaymullina take readers on a journey through a day, celebrating the interconnectedness of people and animals in lyrical language and sumptuous colour.

We All Sleep (Ezekiel Kwaymullina & Sally Morgan, Fremantle Press) takes readers from the “kookaburra calls” of the morning to the “dingo howls” of the evening until all creatures are asleep beneath the stars.’ Books+Publishing

‘The beautiful illustrations are diverse and evocative.’ The West Australian

‘From the dynamism of the watery endpapers to the flight of the kookaburra, all her images resonate with an acute vibrancy. A magpie’s song ripples out in soundwaves and transforms the air, patterns fluctuate, colours undulate and all natural things contain an intensity of life force.’ Magpies

‘The mother–son duo take readers on a journey about life, people and animals in We All Sleep with poetic languages and bright, eye-catching colour.’ Cockburn Gazette

'The chunky, pocket format perfectly complements the bold geometric illustrations and will be a great introduction to Indigenous stories for the very young.' Books + Publishing

'The illustrations vibrate on the page, opulent colours that bring to life country and its creatures.' National Indigenous Times
