Things are not going well for Alex! It looks as if he is going to be filmed by a national news crew standing next to his tree-hugging, slogan-yelling, long-haired grandfather. How embarrassing! But perhaps there is a little more going on with Gramps and his friends than Alex realises.

  • Sally Morgan demonstrates her genius as a storyteller again. She has incorporated a wonderful dreamtime sequence into a contemporary urban story.
  • The Other Side is supported by fun, child-friendly interactive activities on the National Museum of Australia website, to further engage young readers.
  • A great resource for teachers to use for both the SOSE and English curriculum. The title is supported online with a synopsis, discussion questions, and classroom activities, including reproducible worksheets.

The Other Side features a segment of the rabbit–proof fence. It is part of the National Museum's collection.
