In this Aboriginal folk tale from Northern Australia, selfish Crocodile Man is the only creature to possess the gift of fire, which he refuses to share. That is until Bird Woman, tired of the cold and dark, sees her chance and seizes the precious firesticks, going on to spread light and warmth to all. A radiantly illustrated version of this mythical tale.
