Buvettes and Chiko Rolls : 'Australianness in Translated Children's Fiction, H. T. Frank , single work criticism
'This seminar paper looks at the French translations of popular Australian children's books. She argues that the most popular themes in translation are survival, friendship, family relationships, nature and environment, and child-animal relationships, with the majority of works set in rural Australia. French selections reflect a gradual movement away from place-dominant fiction to narrative-dominant fiction. The translating strategies employed, or tendencies exhibited show evidence of a concern with the portrayal of the exotic, rather than with Australianness' (Author's abstract)
