Brother Moon

Brother Moon is a powerful story lovingly told by a great grandfather to his great grandson.

Beneath the dark sky of the Northern Territory, Hippy-Boy is captivated when Great Grandpa Liman tells him the mysterious story of his brother and how it guides his connection to Country.

Great Grandpa is a masterful storyteller and, as the tale unfolds, he finally reveals his brother is the moon — a wonder of the universe. Hippy-Boy learns how his great grandfather uses the phases of the moon when he goes hunting and fishing, and why it is important for us all to have an understanding of the natural world.

Liman (Harry Morgan), the author’s grandfather, was a respected Wadjigany man — a leader amongst his people and the community. Liman was born at Manjimamany in the Northern Territory in 1916. He was a canoe maker, hunter, community mediator, and a family man who lived off the land and travelled the seas. Liman spoke Batjamalh, his first language, and other languages from the Daly River area.

Family is a thoughtful contemplation for all to learn the different ways that family makes us whole. This beautifully illustrated children’s picture book shows everyone that ‘family’ can be about heart and home; an endless sky; stories and songs. The book teaches how to be with each other and with Country. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and this remarkably simple story teaches us all that family can be many things.

This is the second book from the Our Place series, that introduces young minds to First Nations’ cultural philosophies that Aunty Fay Muir, a Boonwurrung Elder holds close to her heart.

These three books in the series have been published by Pat Cronin Foundation Author Maureen Hyland Illustrator Bruce Rankin

The legacy of coward punch victim Pat Cronin is set to help educate young people in feeling empowered to ‘be wise’ and never use violence.

In August this year, the Pat Cronin Foundation launched three storybooks written for primary school-aged children that the Foundation hopes will be shared with young students throughout Australia. Each book includes teacher notes and classroom activities.

The three books are written by Maureen Hyland who taught at Pat’s primary school and was inspired by Pat in creating the characters, colours and commentary.
