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.

- Azaria forms an excellent cross-curricular resource, ideal for class discussion and activity. Teachers' Notes and Resources, will further extensive resource material available online.
