MEDIA REVIEWS

'...It's wide-ranging, but there's a critical intelligence with regard both to the literature and to paganism in its various forms...' - Dr Charles Butler

'Peter Bramwell's final sentence is perhaps the best way to begin this review: 'A creatively critical dialogue between [modern Paganism and children's fiction] is what this book has observed and perhaps, I hope, extended' (190). Pagan Themes in Modern Children's Fiction succeeds in initiating a dialogue well worth extending beyond these pages, both for Pagan Studies and children's-literature scholars.' - Dawn Comer, The Pomegranate: An International Journal of Pagan Studies
