Comment on Australia through Bilby eyes … by Mare Carter.

I have been blessed to watch Kaye unreel her tale. Having for decades known and totally respected her as an artist, illustrator, muralist, gardener and intrepid Outback traveller, I was amazed to see how her conviction that she could write was proved.
After watching her slowly but doggedly progress her story, much as the often fearful five – Bilby and friends – trudged on to their goal, in the best of all causes, I was thrilled to hold the finished trilogy and utterly, heart-poundingly excited to read the epic in its graceful finished form.
“Bilby’s Ring” will become our “Watership Down”, our “Lord of the Rings”. It will make a splendid film. Go Bilby, Chuditch, Mala and all … go Kaye, our modest Centralian national treasure.
