Annaliese Porter was only eight years old when she wrote The Outback. She has captured the Australian outback in all its moods in this moving bush ballad about the country's vast interior.
The Outback, illustrated by respected Aboriginal artist Bronwyn Bancroft, depicts recognisable Australian landscapes and animals such as Uluru, dingoes, cockatoos, snakes and goannas. A stunning picture book destined to become an Australian classic.
Annaliese Porter is one of Australia's youngest published writers, being just eleven years old when The Outback was published. She has been writing ever since she can remember and has received numerous awards for academic excellence and creative writing in her home state of New South Wales.
Bronwyn Bancroft is an award-winning illustrator who has illustrated numerous Australian children's titles.
