What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A terrific and very timely book. Reynolds and Grenby have commissioned some of the best children's literature scholars (themselves included) to address key topics in research and criticism, and the result is a volume at once theoretically sophisticated and highly practical.' - Kenneth Kidd, Associate Professor, University of Florida, USA

'An extremely useful handbook that provides excellent advice on how to approach literary-critical research into children's literature.' - Lisa Sainsbury, National Centre for Research in Children's Literature, Roehampton University, UK
