Publisher's synopsis

Daisy’s life story runs along the bottom of the pages: how she was born on a mission, schooled, introduced to Christianity, started writing and what she does now. The poems and illustrations on each page often relate to her life story. Useful as a reader for adult literacy or as an introduction to biography or poetry.


  • Winner of the Australian Multicultural Children’s Book Award (1992)
