y Hollow Fields and the Perfect Cog Madeleine Rosca , Madeleine Rosca (illustrator), Los Angeles : Seven Seas Entertainment , 2016 10305432 2016 single work graphic novel

'With the menace of Miss Weaver's reign of terror supposedly behind them, the students of Hollow Fields can look forward to a more peaceful curriculum run by her ethically-minded successor, Principal Bleak. But there's one problem-rebuilding the school after Miss Weaver's reign has left Hollow Fields broke! If the school can't scrape together the cash to pay its staff or maintain its grounds, the Board of Unprincipled Mad Science Education will have it shut down and use the student body for scientific experiments.

'Not wanting to be separated from her new friends, Lucy stumbles upon a chance for Principal Bleak to save Hollow Fields. All they have to do is win the inter-school mad science competition and along with it, a hefty cash prize. But just what kind of things go on at a mad science fair?!'

y Developing Intercultural Understanding through Asian-Australian Children's Literature Kerry Mallan , Deborah Henderson , Amy Cross , Cherie Allan , Marrickville : Primary English Teaching Association Australia , 2014 7259502 2014 single work criticism This PETAA paper discusses how the cross-curriculum priority concerned with developing Asia literacy, namely 'Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia', can be significantly advanced through the study of children's literature. The discussion proceeds from a brief overview of the historical development of Asia literacy to its current place with the Australian Curriculum. It then considers the potential of literature for assisting students and teachers in realising this priority through the Asian-Australian Children's Literature and Publishing dataset, a research project on AustLit. Finally, it discusses a small selection of texts - two picture books and a novel - with suggestions of prompts for raising students' intercultural understanding.
