This book investigates the 'series' in children's literature. The works of several well-known children's authors - UK and the US, traditional and contemporary - are analyzed, and using these examples, the book explores the special nature and appeal of series writing for children. As well as providing an historical overview of the series, the author raises important questions about the nature of literary criticism applied to children's literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a refreshingly original for children's literary studies, being one of the first to look in detail at a surprisingly neglected phenomenon: series fiction.Watson's writing is always exciting, not only for its insights but also for the graceful way in which he expresses them, often recreating the frisson of the ideas themselves.."
-Children's Literature Association Quarterly, 2001
