This gentle story set in the rugged Australian bush is about a small calf who becomes separated from his family. The little calf is alone and simply wants his mother, sisters and brothers. He can see other animals, and after running to the river, manages to ask some horses if they are his family. The calf’s family have been taken away in the back of a noisy truck. So begins the little calf’s journey to find his family.
‘Found is a softened and cautiously optimistic version of a disgraceful history that must not be forgotten: Using animals to analogise human stories is a tried and true way to make complex events and ideas accessible for young children, and this is no exception.’
