-Gillian Adams, CLAQ, the Children's Literature Association Quarterly.
"The book is the first critical anthology of texts written for children during the Middle Ages. The volume includes selections from nearly 20 medieval texts, accompanied by incisive critical introductions by an outstanding group of interdisciplinary scholars that illuminate the diversity, sophistication, and complexity of literature for medieval children and youth."
-"Pubblicato Sul Bollettino del Cirt
"Daniel Kline's well-edited book of sixteen essays, each by a different authority and accompanied by the medieval text to which it refers, is an important milestone in the ongoing rediscovery of children's literature prior to the printed book. I cannot recommend it too highly to historians of children's literature, or even those who just say a few words about early children's literature in a survey course. The 20-page bibliography alone is worth the price."
