AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In the sequel to Lockie Leonard Human Torpedo, nothing's simple for Lockie Leonard. Dumped by his girlfriend, he's back to being the loneliest kid in town until he makes friends with the wierdest human being he's ever met. As if that isn't enough, Lockie decides to save save his town from industrial pollution. In the middle of all this the inevitable happens - yes, he falls in love: he drops like a ton of bricks for a girl who's not even out of primary school yet, and to make matters worse she surfs better than he ever will. Can a thirteen-year-old surf rat have a headbanger for a best friend, stay in love with an eleven-year-old grommet and still save the world? (Adapted from Trove)

Works about this Work

y New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature : Utopian Transformations Clare Bradford , Kerry Mallan , John Stephens , Robyn McCallum , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2008 Z1559477 2008 selected work criticism 'New World Orders shows how texts for children and young people have responded to the cultural, economic, and political movements of the last 15 years. With a focus on international children's texts produced between 1988 and 2006, the authors discuss how utopian and dystopian tropes are pressed into service to project possible futures to child readers. The book considers what these texts have to say about globalisation, neocolonialism, environmental issues, pressures on families and communities, and the idea of the posthuman.' - Back cover.
