Once upon a time, at the edge of a wide and dusty desert, there lived an old bilby. His name was Hunwick.
When a mysterious egg appears outside Hunwick’s burrow, no one is quite certain what to think. And when it doesn’t hatch right away, everyone is even more bewildered. Everyone except Hunwick, that is. Hunwick understands that the egg is his friend, and he is the only one who knows its secret.
This treasure of a book promises the young reader a simple, beautifully illustrated tale of identity and belonging.
