"There is so much more to this graphic novel than that storyline... and readers will be fascinated to see how this small community lives at ease with their natural surroundings and each other. Themes of connectedness, breaking down barriers... kindness, generosity, sharing, wildlife, and living in full respect of country are paramount, and will provide endless opportunities to expand on these in a classroom or library setting."
