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.
