An accessible picture book for young children that introduces First Nations history and the term 'terra nullius' to a general audience, from Australian of the Year, community leader and anti-racism advocate Adam Goodes and political adviser and former journalist Ellie Laing, with artwork by Barkindji illustrator David Hardy.

For thousands and thousands of years, Aboriginal people lived in the land we call Australia.

The land was where people built their homes, played in the sun, and sat together to tell stories.

When the white people came, they called the land Terra Nullius. They said it was nobody's land. But it was somebody's land.

Somebody's Land is an invitation to connect with First Nations culture, to acknowledge the hurt of the past, and to join together as one community with a precious shared history as old as time.

Adam Goodes and Ellie Laing's powerful words and David Hardy's pictures, full of life, invite children and their families to imagine themselves into Australia's past - to feel the richness of our First Nations' history, to acknowledge that our country was never terra nullius, and to understand what 'welcome to our country' really means.
Product Features:
  • Recommended for ages 4-8.
  • 'This book is a reflection of me. I'm incredibly hopeful. I choose to be positive, to help us heal as a nation. As a new father, with my daughter now approaching the age where she will start school, I'm so proud to be publishing a series of books about Australia's Indigenous history.' ADAM GOODES
  • 'We would love this series to become a conversation starter for people young and old, to understand the importance of acknowledging Country, the truth about Australia's history, and the rich culture of the traditional custodians of the land we live in.' ELLIE LAING
