Purlka ngamaji Kakaji (Big Fat Mummy Goanna)


Out on a hunting trip a family spies a big goanna. The youngest son wanted to kill it, but his mother said no because it was a Mummy Goanna. They decided to leave her alone so she could lay her eggs in a hole by the boab tree. But that night, they all thought about how good it will be when those babies grow up and how many more goannas there will be to hunt!

This bilingual book – in Walmajarri and English – was produced in a workshop with ILF Ambassador Alison Lester, and author and publisher Jane Godwin.
