It’s here! Our latest digital storybook The Echidna and the Dress is up on the iTunes store, ready for you to download and enjoy.
The Echidna and the Dress is a collaboration between Troy Eaton, his family and artist Stu Campbell as a part of the Yijala Yala Project. Troy is fond of sitting around the campfire sharing stories of his past and culture with his family and friends, and The Echidna and the Dress is one of his favourite tales. Based on true events from Troy’s life The Echidna and the Dress explores the cultural and spiritual connection between himself, his Nanna, an echidna and his country.
This story was created with the support of Troy’s family. Troy’s son Troy Junior, know as Troy Troy, performed the voice of the narrator in the story and Troy’s wife Denise Smith, mother Doris Eaton and aunty Evelyn Mitchell have been invaluable informing the story culturally and historically. The illustrations were coloured in collaboration with young people from Roebourne.
The Echidna and the Dress is a free download, so head on over to the iTunes store and check it out!
