Book review: Wakal gu-bena burrwa

 

Maningrida College has a great collection of books in local languages. Wakal gu-bena burrwa is a Burarra book. It is about a funny thing that happens when some men light a bushfire while they are out hunting. They wake up a buffalo who charges at them. They see it coming at the last minute and split off running in all directions.
