The Seed and the Vision: On the Writing and Appreciation of Children's Books

by Eleanor Cameron
 

Editorial Reviews

Carolyn Phelan
The worthy companion to Cameron's "Green and Burning Tree" comprises 11 essays written over 24 years. Four of the writings are new; the others, the author notes, have been edited or rewritten to some extent for this volume. The essays are grouped under the headings "On Writing," "On Fantasy," "Is It Good, Will It Last?" and "The Unconscious." Thoughtful and probing, Cameron's critiques bring a broad range of reading and a rigorous intellect to bear on children's books from "Peter Pan" to "Tehanu". Best of all, Cameron offers insights with the added dimension of her perspective as a writer of children's books. She understands the creative process as well as its results. A good addition to collections of critical materials on children's books.
