An established introductory textbook that provides students with a guide to developments in children's literature over time and across genres. This stimulating collection of critical essays written by a team of subject experts explores key British, American and Australian works, from picture books and texts for younger children, through to graphic novels and young adult fiction. It combines accessible close readings of children's texts with informed examinations of genres, issues and critical contexts, making it an essential practical book for students.
This is an ideal core text for dedicated modules on Children's Literature which may be offered at the upper levels of an undergraduate Literature or Education degree. In addition it is a crucial resource for students who may be studying children's literature for the first time as part of a taught postgraduate degree in Literature or Education.
