Publisher's synopsis

This beautiful book for the whole family tells, in words and pictures, Bronwyn Bancroft’s unique and inspiring story of growing up in country New South Wales.

‘Come with me to my family’s old house in Lionsville. It’s full of memories. It’s a special place. Uncle Pat calls it a secret place.

We played in that old tin cubby, swam in the creek with the catfish, and fell asleep to the ribbip of frogs at night.

And around the red cedar table we listened to the old people’s stories. We learned a lot that way.’

Renowned artist Bronwyn Bancroft’s Remembering Lionsville brings to vivid life her family’s oral history and her own childhood memories.

‘A book about holding on to memories, treasuring stories and embracing where we came from.’ The School Magazine
