Little Lon by Andrew Kelly, illustrated by Heather Potter & Mark Jackson

Commendation – History Small Publication Award, Victorian Community History Awards 2021 

A hardback picture book for children. A Notable Book in The Children’s Book of the Year Awards, The Children’s Book Council of Australia.

Little Lon scrapes back the layers of history to show how people lived and worked in a post settlement Australian city. Behind the grand buildings of the big streets was Little Lon. A working-class district of little houses and narrow lanes, bursting with life and the stories of the people who lived there. The poor of the time are not often celebrated in traditional histories, but Little Lon shows us something of the way people really lived.

Andrew Kelly is the Yarra Riverkeeper. He was born in Melbourne, grew up in Melbourne and, apart from a few years in England, the land of a portion of his ancestors, he has spent his life in Melbourne. Andrew is passionate about the city, its history and, of course, its river. He has written numerous books for children.
