"The great dome of the sky, black, star-sprinkled, arched above him, appearing at that moment so limitless, so vast and free, that the fences and cages of Taronga were dwarfed, reduced to the point where they barely seemed to exist." Every so often, there comes a story so brilliant and lively and moving that it cannot be left in the past. Rediscover the magic of our country's most memorable children's books in the Penguin Australia Children's Classics series of stories too precious to leave behind.
Victor Kelleher remains one of Australia's most celebrated writers for both adults and children. His books include The Beast of Heaven, Dogboy, Micky Darlin' and My Big Book of Nibbles.
