Colin Goes Bush
Here we revisit the appealing Colin Kennedy (ecowarrior) and his zany family. (Colin first appeared in Recycled – There’s Dad the lawn mowing business owner, Mum the real estate agent and Allie the beauty-conscious teenager. In this story Colin has a new involvement in the local ‘Green Group’ while he grapples with mounting anxieties about his Mum and Dad – are they heading for disaster?
Colin Goes Bush has brilliant flashes of McKay’s trademark humour, quick character sketches and astute observations of family dynamics. The story clips along at a rapid rate with a deceptive casual ease. We’re immediately drawn in to the realm of Green protests and Colin’s bewilderment at how the world works. A funny, laugh-aloud story. Each chapter is introduced with a ‘tree fact’.
