AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dominic Dear is nearly thirteen and confused about life. His parents think he's odd. So do some of his teachers. Dominic suspects they might be right, especially when he starts to fall in love in a very odd way.

'The tumbles and turns of Dominic's life are told via the e-mails that he sends to his mysterious Uncle Peri in Albury.

'Uncle Peri's place is over-run with dancing sheep, howling pumpkins and bikie chickens. And the really odd thing is that Uncle Peri turns out to be the most sensible person in Dominic's life.'

Works about this Work

y Gender Dilemmas in Children's Fiction Kerry Mallan , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2009 Z1939201 2009 single work criticism Gender Dilemmas in Children's Fiction examines how fictional texts – picture books, novels, and films – produced for children and young adults are responding to the tensions and dilemmas that arise from new gender relations and sexual differences. The book discusses a diverse range of international children's fiction published between 1990 and 2008. Some of the key dilemmas that emerge are around the texts' treatment of romance, beauty, cyberbodies, queer, and comedy.
Subverting Censorship Through Heteroqueer: How To Do Straight Queerly (And Get Away With It) In the Novels of Doug MacLeod Kate McInally , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Looking Glass , vol. 12 no. 2 2008;
Kate McInally approaches censorship from perspectives often overlooked in censorship discussions: self-censorship and the censorship of evasion. Using two novels by Australian author Doug MacLeod, McInally explores the subtle queering of heteronormative ideologies, the art of, perhaps, gently twisting depictions of sexualities and desires rather than overtly transgressing the expected norms. McInally commends MacLeod's humorous and incisive questioning of those hetero-norms, yet questions some of his editorial decisions, wondering if he has stopped short of the story he really hoped to tell.
