Meet 11-year-old Bindi. She's not really into maths but LOVES art class and playing hockey. Her absolute FAVOURITE thing is adventuring outside with friends or her horse, Nell. A new year starts like normal — school, family, hockey, dancing. But this year hasn't gone to plan! There's a big art assignment, a drought, a broken wrist AND the biggest bushfires her town has ever seen! Bindi is a verse novel for mid-upper primary students. Written 'for those who plant trees', Bindi explores climate, bush fires, and healing. Written from the point of view of 11-year-old, Bindi and her friends on Gundungurra Country.

Matilda Bookshop Review


Gorgeously written in a stream-of-consciousness style and peppered with black and white sketches, Bindi takes us through the year alongside a bright eleven year old. And what a tumultuous year it is for her!


Drought and bushfires shake Bindi's sense of safety but she has strong family foundations that ground her and a keen eye to find beauty in the natural world. Even when it is harsh or cruel.


I loved the use of the Gundungurra language throughout this book. There is a word list in the back though it is not needed as such, the beautiful words making perfect sense in context. Emilie
