Ten Pound Pom
Walker Books Australia
The author’s family migrated to Australia in 1962 as 'Ten Pound Poms’ when she was 13-years-old. Leaving her teddy bear is one of the emotional issues for both author and reader. Daily life aboard the ship SS Arcadia features along with arriving in Australia and looking ahead. Illustrations in this picture book format add interest and historical details. An explanation of the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme is included.
