“Tiddalick” Storytime at Jandowae Library

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

The July Storytime kit at Jandowae Library is  Tiddalick, the frog who caused a flood: an adaptation of an Aboriginal Dreamtime legend by Robert Roennfeldt.  Tiddalick was so thirsty that he drank up all the rivers and billabongs in the land.
