First published in 1998, this volume explores how the genre of school stories had become firmly established by the turn of the twentieth century, having been built on the foundations laid by writers such as Thomas Hughes and F.W. Farrar. Stories for girls were also taking on a more exciting complexion, inspired by the `Katy' books of Susan Coolidge.

The first five decades of the twentieth century saw further developments in children's fiction. In this comprehensive volume, John and Jonathan Cooper examine each decade in turn, with alphabetically arranged entries on popular children's writers that published works in English during that period. 206 different authors are covered, many from the United States and Canada. Each entry provides information on the author's pseudonyms, date of birth, nationality, titles of works, place and date of publication and the publisher's name. The artist responsible for a book's illustrations is also identified where possible.

With over 200 illustrations of cover designs and dustwrappers, many of which are now rare and have never before been published, this book will delight collectors, dealers, scholars, librarians, parents and all those who simply enjoy reading children's fiction.
