My Brother Ben

Peter Carnavas

Winner of NSW Premier’s Literary Awards 2022 - Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children’s Literature

Shortlisted for the Readings Children’s Prize 2022

A timeless story of brothers, boats and birds, from an award-winning storyteller.

Luke and his big brother Ben spend the summer on the banks of Cabbage Tree Creek. Quiet Luke sketches birds, while Ben leaps off the Jumping Tree. The boys couldn’t be more different but they share the same dream- winning a boat so they can explore the creek properly.

Then Ben starts high school and the boys drift apart. When Luke catches Ben sneaking out at night, he knows his brother’s up to something, but what?

A timeless story of birds and boats, and of brotherly love that is bigger than a wedge-tailed eagle, bigger than the sky.
