I just don't get Chris McKimmie.

This book is about a boy named Kevin ("Special Kev"), who has red curly hair and numerous cousins. Special Kev gets in trouble for tying a friend, Nicky Bathgate, to a tree.

I kept looking for references to the new (at the time this book was written) Australian Prime Minister - Kevin Rudd - but no political references for the parents in this book.
