Editorial Reviews


College students and others who want to write or re-experience children's literature will find this a fine study: chapters are scholarly in their discussions of rhetorical literature, the foundations of children's literature, poetic styles, and other creative theories on producing children's writings. Recommended especially for college-level students. -- Midwest Book Review
