"The articles in the companion are indeed carefully anchored in compelling picturebook material, and each chapter offers a volu-minous list of references, which makes the volume perfect for teach-ing purposes. The generous lists of references also provide excellent sources for further research. It is evident that this well-written and pedagogical companion will inspire new studies and help diversify this manifold, complex and growing field of research further."
