Dreamers is a beautiful, joyful book for the children of the world written by Ezekiel Kwaymullina and illustrated by Sally Morgan.
“We are the dream and the dreamers. The rain jumpers and the cloud fliers.”
Ezekiel and Sally both belong to the Palyku people from the Pilbara region of Western Australia. I first remember learning about Sally’s art in high school and love her bright and energetic illustrations that capture the energy and playfulness of childhood. Ezekiel’s poetic text is a joy to read and I can’t wait to see his latest picture book ‘Colour Me’ due out this year, that uses a rainbow as a metaphor for our diversity.
