Join Miri in her special spot, high up among the dappled leaf-light, and below with her neighbour Wingo, two joeys, a wombat and a baby emu!

A story about friendship, taking down barriers and creating community, finding your own path in the world and inspiring others along the way – from one of Australia’s most unique creative talents.


‘Another lovely adventure from Trace Balla. Rich in country and family, deep in care for the future.’ BRUCE PASCOE

‘A beautiful book about being connected to the world at ground level. I feel like I’ve made a new friend through Trace’s exquisitely accessible drawings and gentle prose.’ ALISON LESTER

‘Reminiscent of Alison Lester and Roland Harvey, Landing with Wings is a story about moving slowly, looking carefully and remaining curious, and it is a book that leads by example. In her loving portrait of community life in Dja Dja Wurrung Country, Balla achieves something like contemporary visual bush poetry. It is spellbinding.’ BOOKS+PUBLISHING
