My Deadly Boots

March 29, 2017

An empowering, uplifting picture book about what it is that makes you who you are, from the award-winning authors of Black Cockatoo.

When a young Aboriginal boy finally receives the footy boots he has been saving for, they give him the confidence he needs to face the struggles in his life. He wears them everywhere, showing them off to his friends and family as he goes. But when his boots go missing, his grandfather helps him to realise that there is much more to him than what he wears on his feet — he can draw strength from the support of his family and his connection to culture and Country.
