A boy named Paul struggles to find peace with his parents arguing and other kids bullying him at school… his only solitude is the bushland where he walks...

A black cockatoo will become Paul's spiritual guide and catches his attention as it flies into a mystical, dark tunnel. One day, the black cockatoo becomes something more to Paul and someone he can truly trust and share with… A young indigenous boy who will reward Paul with the education of the ancient land and wisdoms of a great people, who live as one with the vast lands of this country. 

Through knowledge and awareness, Paul will find the solutions to his life challenges and grow to become more than he had thought possible… and love his family, and his country as one homeland.

The author and publisher acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and pay respects to the Elders, past, present and future.

About the Illustrator: Aaron Wolf

Born in Canada, I have just recently relocated from Sydney to Melbourne to join the team at Playtime as an illustrator. My passion has always been creating worlds and the characters that inhabit these lands, so to be illustrating these books is a dream come true. Something I have wanted to do since I was a little child, creating my own books and comics.

“A cultural and ethical milestone for children and communities alike… A story of being respectful to self and all around in this small world we share. Wonderful...” Dale, Indie Book reviewer

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
