Works about this Work

Visual Identities : Australianness in Australian Picture Books Pam Macintyre , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Teaching Australian Literature : From Classroom Conversations to National Imaginings 2011; (p. 352-368)
‘The literature written for young people can be a vehicle for mediating change in mainstream attitudes, or it can confirm existing values. As with all literature, it carries ideologies. In this chapter, I will focus on the picture book, which constructs its meanings through dual visual and written texts. In particular, I will analyse selected, recent award-winning Australian picture books for their representations of ‘Australianness’.’ (From author’s introduction, p. 352)
Representing and Projecting Possible Identities: Australian Children's Literature Vaughan Prain , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Looking Glass , vol. 11 no. 3 2007;
In this essay he questions the assertion by John Stephens that Australian (and, thus, any national) children's literature is primarily representational and that it should be interpreted predominantly in terms of established socio-cultural positions and values.
