Editorial Reviews

Review

"These essays cohere around the belief that at the end of a century, people have a general interest in ideas encapsulated in that period; as McGillis observes in the introduction, the book "sounds a millennium ring; more than this it has apocalyptic implications." A particular value of this book is its inclusion of international children's literature. Included are articles on Dutch children's poetry, German pacifist literature, Italian adventure novels, Slovene science fiction, and Australian young adult fiction....Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above."-Choice

"[p]resents a satisfying survey of children's literature in its many incarnations throughout the world...A fine set of considerations on evolving trends and characters in kids' literature."-Library Bookwatch
