Bears Don't Bounce! Pigs Don't Fly! With Bryan Sullivan Switch! The stories of Australian writer Jackie French are inspired by her love of the landscape Down Under, her good-natured humor, and her passionate involvement in environmental and horticultural issues. The Australian bush serves as the backdrop of books such as her highly acclaimed story collection Rainstones, while the continent's unique creatures stars in picture books such as Diary of a Wombat and Josephine Wants to Dance. As Kevin Steinberger noted in Magpies, French "explores [the native Australian flora and fauna] with a keen multi-sensory perception that indicates a genuine affinity with the land and a passion for its life.
Readers "imbibe not just plot and character but a very distinct group of country settings as well," Jameyson wrote. Organized in fifteen sections, French's book presents a multitude of reflective and unanswerable questions, such as "How did the universe begin? French encourages readers to come up with their own answers to these questions but also suggests that they talk with librarians, ministers, teachers, or other adults in their personal search for answers.
Although she focuses on scientific explanations for the origins of life and of the universe, the critic added that French also gives "room and respect" to other alternatives, such as creationism. The Little Book of Big Questions is "a. Although she has written several novels for adults, most of French's fiction is geared for younger readers. Somewhere around the Corner, a middle-grade novel, transports Barbara, an Australian foster child, from a violent labor dispute in s Sydney, back to that city in , in the midst of the Great Depression.
Fortunately for Barbara, she meets Jim, a young boy her own age who brings her home to his family. Amid the era's hard times and misfortune, Barbara comes to know the loving warmth and support of a family for the first time. Rogers claimed that "thorough character development and a captivating story save the novel from preaching.
Litton in a review of Somewhere around the Corner. In her award-winning middle-grade novel Hitler's Daughter, French focuses on a boy who is pondering one of modern history's darker moments. After one of his friends tells a fictional story about the secret daughter of German Chancellor Adolph Hitler during a storytelling game, ten-year-old Mark begins to reflect on the tale's deeper implications.
He puts himself in the girl's place, living during World War II , and wonders what his life would be like if a trusted adult he looked up to for guidance was actually as evil as the Nazi leader. If he was the son of Hitler, and learned that his father was killing thousands of people, what would he have done? From there, the boy turns to the deeper implications of other things happening in the world, such as the taking of aboriginal lands, resulting in what Booklist reviewer Hazel Rochman dubbed a "disturbing, fast-paced story" that "makes clear the roles of perpetrator and bystander.
In Rover, published in Australia as They Came on Viking Ships, French goes back in time a thousand years to tell the story of Hekja, a girl who lives in a seaside town in Sweden. Captured by a band of Viking raiders led by Freydis Eriksdottir, the daughter of Erik the Red, the twelve-year-old girl and her dog, Snarl, are taken to Greenland.
