Product Description

Review

'… concise, stimulating comments on other school stories from the late 20th century, such as Diana Wynne Jones's Witch Week, help cast the conventions and conventionality of the Harry Potter books into relief and draw attention to the numerous alternative school stories out there.' www.parentcentral.ca

'The Cambridge Companion, lucid, entertaining, and with hardly a word wasted, locates itself in an accessible, mainstream position, and generally does an outstanding job of playing critical and historical catch-up on its more established literary fellow disciplines … beautiful to behold - books to cheer the bookperson's heart, and the inclusion in the series of a volume on Children's Literature, especially one as good as this, should be the cause of unalloyed delight.' Modern Language Review

' … excellent, straightforward collection that covers the fundamentals. It is also a collection that inspires readers to delve deeper … provides a perfect sampling of scholarship for undergraduate and graduate students, but this collection should also appeal to established scholars and experts in the field.' Muse

If you are a teacher, a student or someone interested in themes about children, this is an excellent book. All essays are very interesting and well written. I also recommend "A history of Childhood" by Colin Heywood.
