Book reviews

“The chapters in the collection are broad but not typical in how they approach children’s literature. As a whole, the collection is well structured and diverse in its critical approaches […] As an introduction to children’s literature, The Cambridge Companion to Children’s Literature is an excellent, straightforward collection that covers the fundamentals. It is also a collection that inspires readers to delve deeper.” 
– Matthew B. Prickett, Rutgers University at Camden, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly

“…each does what it sets out to do-to illuminate different ways of thinking about this strikingly complex subject, with its multiple audiences and their different needs. They would make good, complementary, companions on anyone’s shelf.” 
– Peter Hunt, Newcastle University
