MEDIA REVIEWS
"A winner of the SAES/AFEA Research Prize, this rich and complex study brilliantly merges fairylands and scientific worlds. ... proves a compelling read, and a fascinating and valuable introduction to fields as diverse as nineteenth century's natural history, fantastic literature (not only for children) and Victorian culture at large." (Mara Mattoscio, Rivista di Studi Vittoriani, Vol. 40, 2017)
