Only Connect: Readings on Children's Literature.
Egoff, Sheila, Ed.; And Others
This collection of 40 articles and essays on English-language children's literature encompasses literary history and criticism, standards, changing tastes, the child's response to books, writers and their writing, illustration, and recent books. Most of the articles and essays were written in the 1960's, but a few important earlier contributions to the criticism of children's literature are included. Two new essays--one on science fiction and the other a capsule history of writing for children--were written especially for this book. The six sections of the book are: Books and Children; Fairy Tales, Fantasy, Animals; Historical Fiction; Some Writers and Their Books; Illustration; and The Modern Scene. Notes on contributors, a selected bibliography, and a subject index are included. (MC)
