Ages 4+ Follow a young Aboriginal boy’s aspiration to shear sheep, which transforms into enlistment with his friends during World War I, altering their lives. Vicki Bennett, working alongside Des Crump, Indigenous Languages Coordinator, Queensland Memory, shaped this narrative from Des’s story of his Great Uncle Charlie. Charlie Bird and George Bennett’s rare welcome home ceremony at Euraba Aboriginal settlement after the war inspired the tale. Vicki curated Charlie’s experiences, collaborating with Des, Charlie’s family, and incorporating their insights into the book “Charlies War.” A heartfelt account born from shared conversations and generous support.
