This is a scholarly book, but very readable and full of insight into the authors and their most famous works. A very good read for anyone, but especially for those reading these classics to small children. Because of the other titles mentioned during the book, I now have a very long list of children's classics to read to my child before he's much older. It's a fabulous book for adults to understand more about children's books and why the classic works really work.
