We are largely defined by how we face our fears. A boy goes on a melancholy, often terrifying but ultimately life-affirming journey of self-discovery as a stockman in far North Queensland. In an exquisitely illustrated collage of memory and dreamscape, nightmare and cold reality, Matt Ottley fuses the moral choices of the individual with the demands of society. In this stirring adventure, the boy confronts a huge, rogue Brahmin bull and learns he must acknowledge the errors of the past before he can fully embrace the future. The graphic novel includes a CD and music specially composed for it by the author/illustrator.
Matt Ottley is one of Australia's most acclaimed children's author/illustrators and his works have been translated into several languages. He also works as a composer and musician. Matt's works include WHAT FAUST SAW, LUKE'S WAY OF LOOKING (CBCA Honour Book, 2000), REQUIEM FOR A BEAST (CBCA Picture Book of the Year and Queensland Premier's Award for YA Fiction 2008), HOME AND AWAY (CBCA Honour Book 2009) and PARACHUTE (CBCA Honour Book 2014).
