On Mature Reflection: "Strange Objects" and the Cultivation of Reflective Reading.
Heyde, Emma
Children's Literature in Education, v31 n3 p195-205 Sep 2000
Examines Gary Crew's novel written for a young adult audience, called "Strange Objects," a story containing verifiable historical fact interwoven with elements of fiction and the supernatural. Shows how the numerous genres and viewpoints in the book challenge and contradict one another, forcing young readers to perform resistant readings and to deepen their awareness of their own reading practices.
