Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is a wonderfully lucid and succinct account of children's literature criticism and its development, and will be invaluable both to existing scholars and to anyone wishing to navigate this complex territory for the first time. I thoroughly recommend it.' - Catherine Butler, Cardiff University, UK 'This is an excellent, valuable and timely contribution to criticism in the field of children's literature for undergraduates and graduate students. Not since Peter Hunt's works of 1990 and 1992 has there been a review of literary criticism of children's literature - a gap which Pat Pinsent has filled in a comprehensive and readable manner. The organisation of the work mirrors the development of the field, and also includes sections on the oft neglected areas of poetry and drama. Covering early approaches from the end of the Second World War to developing contemporary critical perspectives such as cognitive criticism and ecocriticism, the work looks not only to the past but also to the future.' - Jean Webb, University of Worcester, UK 'In her book, Pat Pinsent constructs, with considerable skill, a a narrative citing and discussin around 250 books and articles...Clear, readable, enlightenign and worthwhile' - Peter Hunt, Newcastle University, UK
