Murnaghan and Roberts's close readings of individual retellings contain many moments of interest. * Times Literary Supplement *
Childhood and the Classics is undoubtedly an invaluable piece of research which will surely lead the way for further work in this fascinating and emerging field. The conclusions are extremely strong and well-supported, the book well- referenced and the text both invaluable to a specialist and able to be followed by the general reader. * Robin Diver, Rosetta *
This is a pioneering book which opens up a new field in classical reception studies. Clearly and thoughtfully written, well organised, with several illustrations including eight fine colour plates, it is a pleasure both to read and to look at. The authors, who have a long history of fruitful collaboration, have absorbed a vast amount of primary and secondary literature which is deftly and unobtrusively deployed to support their analyses of children's literature influenced by and/or about classical antiquity. * Christopher Stray, Classics for All *
