It would be quite a challenge to grow up in Australia and not have heard of Ned Kelly. He is the hero/thief that has become an infamous part of Australian history. Indeed he has even become immortalised in the art work of Sir Sydney Nolan.
Ned Kelly and the Green Sash is told in first person and with each page we are taken on a journey through the circumstances that made Ned Kelly the infamous leader of the Kelly Gang.
The story is superbly crafted, leaving you with a much greater understanding of how this boy, who saved his classmate from drowning, grew up to become an infamous folk hero. The pictures are beautiful in their simplicity. A great book for exploring different points of view and perspectives.
