The Day My Father Danced Again was published in 1996 to critical acclaim and won an APA Scholastic Award that year.

The Day My Father Danced Again

This highly original tale is inspired by the authors exposure and interest around indigenous culture all over the world and, in particular, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people of Australia. Although essentially written as a book for children it handles interesting issues which have appeal for adults. For example, the absent father, the rites of passage for a boy into manhood, wisdom that can be found in indigenous cultures and a healthy respect for the earth. The Day My Father Danced Again was published thanks to the talents of Debra Bibi from Box Press and illustrated by the highly capable artist, Alison Kubbos
