Synopsis

BOORI MONTY PRYOR: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2012-13'I'm heading out on m'own, down the highway to the big city. Going south. I lost my taste for knowing the old ways. I'm wanting what's new. What's exciting, what's out there on the other side of town. That's what got me on this bus. I gotta get out, see. This is my chance. My chance to do something.'But in the city you can feel like you don't exist any more. You can't always see the sun when it comes up, or lie down safe when it sets. Your mind can go crazy, crammed with everyone else's thoughts, so you can't hear your voice on the inside. An outstandingly honest, original, eye-opening story about a young man daring to step out into a complex world. Njunjul the Sun will make you laugh, even as it grips your heart.Njunjul the Sun completes the trilogy, begun with My Girragundji and The Binna Binna Man, charting the journey of self-discovery of a young Aboriginal boy as he learns to draw strength from his traditional heritage and to find a way of living in contemporary Australia. The boy is now a young man of sixteen, and he leaves his community in Queensland to live in Sydney.

Njunjul the Sun develops the innovative combination of text, photographs and illustrations that was established in My Girragundji.
