Adults and children will delight in Ambelin Kawaymullina’s use of colour, pattern, and design. Read the story together as you view the illustrations hung at child height. Within each illustration are hidden Australian objects. Where is dingo going? The animals are in for a surprise when dingo’s final destination is revealed on the final illustration.
