This book offers a critical account of historical books about Britain written for children, including realist novels, non-fiction, fantasy and alternative histories. It also investigates the literary, ideological and philosophical challenges involved in writing about the past, especially for an audience whose knowledge of history is often limited.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Many people with an enthusiasm for history form their impressions of it by childhood reading. This book shows clearly how complex the portraits of the British past given in children's literature actually are, and how culturally and ideologically loaded. It is one of those works which both vindicate and reinforce the importance of their subject.'

Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol, UK
