The Phoenix Award of the Children's Literature Association International (ChLA), begun in 1985, is given to the author of a children's book first published twenty years earlier that did not win a major award then but is deemed worthy of special recognition for its high literary quality. These volumes bring together the acceptance speeches of the award-winning writers. During the first five years the award was given to: Rosemary Sutcliff, Robert Burch, Leon Garfield, Erik Christian Haugaard, and Helen Cresswell, with papers about the award-winning books and the honor books by Milton Meltzer and Adrienne Richard and biographies of the writers and bibliographies of their books for children.

...another cause for rejoicing... * Signal Journal *
This is a fascinating volume of information...a useful text. * Library Association Record *
The pleasures of this volume lie primarily in the sensation of listening in upon a group of informed, articulate debaters as their diverse critical voices discuss each title. It is exhilarating to read the range of perceptions concerning this group of significant writers. And it is striking to reassess the tremendous talent of the early 1970s...a fascinating resource for teachers and students of children's literature and student research in secondary schools... * Teacher Librarian *
