Annotation

Each double page spread in this picture book features characters who have come to a particular part of Australia from another country. A four-line refrain reveals a brief reason for their leaving their homeland. Each has a positive feeling about a new life. There is one young girl who reveals she is a refugee and hopes Australia will let her into the country. Some of the many homelands represented with a brief comment on why they left their homeland include Ireland, Italy, Greece, England, China, Afghanistan Vietnam and Somalia.
