Margaret's books explore a diverse range of themes but she is particularly noted for exploring issues of identity, trust, and death. Let the Celebrations Begin focused on the imminent release of Jewish prisoners from a German concentration camp, while in The Very Best of Friends the death of a farmer prompts his widowed wife to find the love to care for their respective pets, a cat and dog, equally. Fox, illustrated by Ron Brooks using the colours of the Australian landscape, is a powerful story about betrayal.
