This book is the result of a collaboration between Mabuiag State School, Ron and Anne Edwards and the Rams Skull Press in July 1997. The artist-in-residency project was made possible through the funding support of PCAP (Priority Country Area Program). Jim Ballantyne, State School Principal at Mabuiag, played a vital role in nurturing this project. Thanks also go to the teacher Mavis Joe and the teacher's aids Annie Min and May Gigiba. Thanks also to Sophie Luffman for letting me use her computer and Linda Ballantyne for feeding us so well.
