Kep Kaatijin is a collection of stories based on traditional Noongar knowledge and storytelling. These stories have been sourced from senior Noongar Elders and adapted by Derek Nannup and David Milroy.

From Mumung, the hungry whale, to Djitty Djitty, the angry willy wagtail, Kep Kaatijin will take young audiences on a fascinating and entertaining journey into traditional Noongar knowledge and storytelling. 

Through traditional and contemporary myths and legends, Kep Kaatijin brings to life stories from the waterways of the South West of Western Australia.
