Remembering Lionsville

'a story of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people existing in support of each other.'

Gorgeously vibrant, large and filled with gentle narrative, Remembering Lionsville is a glimpse into the childhood of one of Australia's most prolific childrens' illustrators, Bronwyn Bancroft.

Bancroft's unique style graces each page with each one presenting a different memory from her childhood. Aimed at slightly older readers, Bancroft takes us gently through her memories of family members, childhood antics and sleeping on the verandah.

Each double paged illustration features an imaginative border which pulls out key elements from that particular memory, and showcases Bancroft's style wonderfully. The mixed media style works well, we loved those cheeky photos attached to the 'big blue Ford'.

It is when you reach the final pages of Remembering Lionsville that you can truly apprecite the significance and importance of this picture book. The message is oh so clear. Our own history, stories, and family are all important - let's share what we know.

This book will work incredibly well in classrooms, or even at home, as inspiration for projects on family histories.

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
Come with me to my family's old house in Lionsville. It's full of memories. It's a special place. Uncle Pat calls it a secret place.
We played in that old tin cubby, swam in the creek with the catfish, and fell asleep to the ribbip of frogs at night.
And around the red cedar table we listened to the old people's stories. We learned a lot that way.
Renowned artist Bronwyn Bancroft's Remembering Lionsville brings to vivid life her family's oral history and her own childhood memories.
