The Unlikely Story of Bennelong and Phillip is the first book in a series of narrative non-fiction from Michael Sedunary and Bern Emmerichs exploring first settlement history in Australia.

This extraordinary story about the unlikely friendship between Governor Phillip and Bennelong, a young Eora man is one of Australia's most important and intriguing stories, yet remains largely unknown.

The book has been beautifully written by Michael Sedunary and complimented with artwork from celebrated Australian ceramic artist, Bern Emmerichs.

"Gorgeously illustrated by ceramist Bern Emmerichs, this sophisticated picture book is timely around Australia Day. For mature primary readers and up, this is the remarkable story of two memorable characters: Indigenous Australian Bennelong and Captain Arthur Phillip...This is an amazing story filled with tragedy and promise."
