Two Mates

By Melanie Prewett
Illustrated by Maggie Prewett

For ages 5–9

Two Mates is the true story of the special mateship between two young boys who have grown up together in the coastal town of Broome in Australia’s north-west.

Jack is Indigenous and Raf is a non-Indigenous boy who has spina bifida. Jack and Raf take the reader on a journey of their daily life growing up in Broome. Together they search for hermit crabs, go hunting for barni, fish for salmon, explore the markets, eat satays and dress up as superheros.

The fact that Raf is in a wheelchair is only revealed at the end of the story.

Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.
