Girls Transforming: Invisibility and Age-Shifting in Children's Fantasy Fiction Since the 1970s - Critical Explorations in Science Fiction and Fantasy (Paperback)Sanna Lehtonen (author)
- We can order this
The main focus is on English-language fantasy published since the 1970s but the motifs of invisibility and age-shifting in earlier tales and children's books is reviewed; this is the first study of children's fantasy literature that considers these tropes at length.
Novels discussed are from both critically acclaimed authors and the less well known. Most of the novels depicting invisible or age-shifting girls are neither thoroughly conventional nor radically subversive but present a multiplicity of discourses. In terms of gender, children's fantasy novels can be more complex than they are often interpreted to be.
