Christmas Eve 1974 is marked indelibly into the Australian psyche, as the night tropical Cyclone Tracy devastated the city of Darwin. Now, over 40 years later, Jackie Frenchs lyrical rhyming text tells the story of a citys indomitable spirit, and Bruce Whatleys sumptuous illustrations bring to life the powerful force of the storm to a whole new generation of readers.
