Christmas Eve 1974 is marked indelibly into the Australian psyche, as the night tropical Cyclone Tracy devastated the city of Darwin.

Now, over 40 years later, Jackie French’s lyrical rhyming text tells the story of a city’s indomitable spirit, and Bruce Whatley’s sumptuous illustrations bring to life the powerful force of the storm to a whole new generation of readers.
