This book is brilliant - it takes you through from the very origins of children's literature right to the present day with Harry Potter and the His Dark Materials trilogy. McCulloch brings to light the not so discussed themes within children's literature, giving it a whole new edge. The book offers plenty of close readings; for example of The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, The Secret Garden and much more. I would seriously recommend this book for anyone studying children's literature either at an entry level or high.
