Stolen Girl is a fictionalised account of the Stolen Generation. This picture book for
young readers tells the story of an Aboriginal girl taken from her family and sent to a
children’s home. Through the combination of beautiful mixed media illustrations by
artist Norma MacDonald and a sensitive yet uncomplicated text by Trina Saffioti,
readers are given an insight into the life of a child who has been displaced into a
world void of love, family and culture. The book concludes with a sense of hope as
the girl takes her first steps towards home.
