A Look at the Modern Fantasy Currently Available to Young Readers.
Cianciolo, Patricia Jean
This paper examines the fantasy literature that is currently available to young readers. Twenty-two children's books are listed and discussed under the following topics: good storytelling and lively imagination, recurring themes, satires and word play, original fairytales, and works that reflect the divided self, the occult, and parapsychology. It is suggested that the value of this type of literature is that it promotes creative, imaginative thinking in young readers, enabling them to consider alternative views of life. (RL)
