Ella lived in the red-dirt country
where the earth was as dry as old bones
and it hadn't rained
for years
and years
and years.

One night, Ella dreamt of the ocean...

A captivating picture book and a very Australian story of drought and renewal, of family, of imagination and of the power of hope. A warm, easy read that is highly relatable to anyone who lives on the land and experiences the trials and tribulations at the hands of Mother Nature.
