  1. Carol Lymbery says:

    Can you please advise or share any stories about Kubbagang the Bat. We are part of a small group of community workers starting a reading programme for young children and a group of children have identified the flying fox/bat as their preferred mascot. We would like to ask our local elders if they think that Kubbagang the Bat would be acceptable and it would be great if we could include a dreamtime story when we talk with the elders. Hope you can help us. Carol Lymbery and Kayla Maltby
