Spark cover


by Adam Wallace and Andrew Plant

I began as a tiny spark in the dry grass.
All I wanted was a friend. I found one in the
wind, who helped me grow, who helped me
fly! In the end, though, was the wind really
my friend at all?

About the Author

Adam Wallace was 11 years old when the Ash Wednesday bushfires threatened his home.

Forced to leave with his grandmother, no car and a budgie in a cage, it was only a wind change that saved Adam’s home.

The memory still burns bright, even though Adam now lives in a bushfire-free area.

About the Illustrator

Andrew Plant has always loved the Australian bush, and painting it and the animals that live in it.

He was 20 km from the Black Saturday bushfires, but remembers the taste of ash in the thick, hazy air, and seeing the glow that night in the sky.
