About the Book

Lilli's family is moving from the bush to the city, and Lilli is sure she'll be horribly lonely.  She'll miss the mangoes, she'll miss her cousins, and most of all she'll miss her Nan.  But Nan sends a special friend south with Lilli, a secret Shadow to look after her.  And Lilli discovers life in the city isn't so bad after all.

An illustrated first chapter book showing the interaction between Aboriginal beliefs and the modern world.

Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome. Since it was first published by McPhee Gribble on 1 April 1991 Tim Winton’s award-winning novel has been reimagined as a successful play, a major TV mini-series and now an opera.
