Editorial Reviews

Review

Anne Lundin's book will be of great use to scholars, teachers, librarians, and any reader interested in the careers of Crane, Caldecott, and Greenaway considered together with the color printing that did so much to make their texts popular. (Children's Literature Association Quarterly)

The subject's considered here are enhanced by Lundin's writing style, which delights in her enthusiasm for these works. After you have pulled a couple of chief picture books of Crane, Caldecott, and Greenaway from the shelves, this book serves as an excellent review-introduction to their careers, their reception, and the state of publishing for children at the end of the nineteenth century in Britain, as well as just how the images were produced. It is useful for establishing the context in which the picture books of the Victorian period throved, and it is also a discerning commentary on the roles and responsibilities of criticism in the twenty-first century... (Children's Literature)

Lundin extensively researched over 70 periodicals to bring a fresh perspective and individualize the work of [Walter Crane, Caldecott, and Kate Greenaway]....This valuable resource on the development of the picture book should be included in the professional collection of all school and children's librarians....Highly recommended.
