Works about this Work

Representations of National Identity in Fictionalized History : Children's Picture Books and World War I Heather Sharp , Vicki Parkes , 2017 single work criticism
— Appears in: New Review of Children's Literature and Librarianship , vol. 23 no. 2 2017; (p. 126-147)

'With the centenary of World War I (WWI) commemorative events taking place, Australia’s involvement in this conflict is popularly seen as inextricably linked to a definitive national identity. Numerous children’s books have been published that represent events from WWI. Eight such picture books, aimed at primary school students and published post-2010, are selected for analysis. This analysis comes at a time when there is significant attention being paid by governments, community organisations, media outlets and the general public to the anniversary of WWI. Therefore, it is timely to analyse representations of this conflict, particularly to understand contemporary representations aimed at children.'
