'From its scene-setting introduction to its closing studies of dead and dying children, this collection is a compelling read that offers new ways of thinking about such nineteenth-century phenomena and institutions as the family, the children's book, the theater, toys, imperialism, and sensation fiction. In the process, it offers a salutary reminder that neither consumer culture not the festishization and commodification of youth is a new phenomenon, while highlighting continuities between adults and children, past and present, and the nexus of desire surrounding constructions of childhood then and now.' Kim Reynolds, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
