Rain Stones

Another brilliant Aussie author is Jackie French who published this collection of short stories in 1991.

Rain Stones is about the drought baking the Australian land to a crisp and a child's belief in old Aboriginal rain stones to bring the long-craved moisture to save everything she loves.

The other 4 stories also paint the country as a magical place where people only need open their eyes and imaginations to see the possibilities beyond the edge of their existence.

Another book that will have children returning to it as an old favourite.
