British Children's Books in the Twentieth Century.
Eyre, Frank
A revised and expanded version of an earlier study of modern British children's literature (1952), this latest edition begins with an introductory section on the historical development of children's literature and follows with chapters examining the main trends in British children's books from 1900 to the present day. Special attention is given to authors, artists, and books that have been recognized as particularly outstanding in the field. Regional writing (writings of the British Commonwealth) are also considered. The volume concludes with appendixes on writing in British Commonwealth countries, listings of book award winners, and an extensive bibliography of books about children's literature. (HOD)
