Azaria - Maree Coote


We have run out of stock for this item.

Where wild animals and people meet, tragedy can strike, because just like the big bad wolf, the dingo is not afraid of you and me.

A beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture book that sensitively explores the collision of wilderness and civilisation, explains a famous miscarriage of justice, and examines the role of the media in history-telling, in an appropriate manner for children.

  • A modern day fairy tale, cautionary and unforgettable. Essential reading for students of history and the law, young and old.
  • When a tiny baby is stolen by a dingo, nobody will believe the truth. Prejudice, ignorance and gossip grip the nation, and the tragedy is transformed into a quest for the truth. Are you sure you know what happened? Azaria is a cautionary tale about justice, the media, wilderness, and the perils of mob thinking.
  • Azaria forms an excellent cross-curricular resource, ideal for class discussion and activity. Teachers' Notes and Resources, will further extensive resource material available online.
