Who’s that Jumbun in the Log?

Narelle McRobbie
Illustrated by Grace Fielding


The delightful tale of a witchetty grub called Jumbie. The word ‘jumbun’ is the name used by the Yidinji people of Far North Queensland for the witchetty grub. Jumbie loves her comfortable log in the rainforest and prefers to stay close to home, unlike her best friend, Bungy. When forest intruders force her out, Jumbie has to learn a thing or two about what it really means to be a jumbun.
