Extract from  The Succesful Delivery of Magic Fish Dreaming by Mel Irvine

Arriving back in Estancia after more than two months in Australia and one of my first visits was to the family of Jerry’s best friend. I had a small bag of gifts from Australia including a Koala plushie and the wonderful Magic Fish Dreaming.

June Perkins, my friend and author of Magic Fish Dreaming arranged almost one year ago to share her wonderful book here with some of the kids and June, if you are reading this, they truly love it. Success!

We drank pepsi and ate little packets of biscuits and the kids looked through their bag of bag of gifts.

“Isda, Isda” (Fish, Fish) sang their squeals of delight.

“Grabi” (Wow) cried out six year old Roseanne and her little brother Nilson (four), turning the pages of wonderful illustrations. What a joy to photograph their candid delight.
