A wonderful collection of songs by passionate indigenous advocate Ruby Hunter and how they came about, each of the children’s songs tells a unique story and are educational. Whilst travelling and documenting Ruby’s journey through Cape York and the different communities Ruby’s ability to communicate with children is remarkable. The songs in this book take one on a journey that is vivid and touching. This is definitely a book one would want to have. The illustrations throughout are colourful and detailed.


  1. Dear BIB,

    Thank you for this post and review about Butcher Paper! I just noticed a small typo in the name of the publisher – it is One Day Hill who publishes this book!

    Best wishes,
