*Winner of the Kestin Indigenous Illustrator Award*

*Longlisted for the 2021 ABIAs: Small Publishers' Children's Book of the Year*

Age range 0-8

This gentle story set in the rugged Australian bush is about a small calf who becomes separated from his family. The little calf is alone and simply wants his mother, sisters and brothers. He can see other animals, and after running to the river, manages to ask some horses if they are his family. The calf's family have been taken away in the back of a noisy truck. So begins the little calf's journey to find his family.

In Found we share the calf's point of view in an evocative story, accompanied by stunning illustrations.

'Foundis a softened and cautiously optimistic version of a disgraceful history that must not be forgotten: the Stolen Generations. Charmaine Ledden-Lewis' rich illustrations in the deep, bold colours of the Australian desert never let us forget where we are and whose story this is...Using animals to analogise human stories is a tried and true way to make complex events and ideas accessible for young children, and this is no exception.' -Anica Boulanger-Mashberg, Books + Publishing, read here
