"Which One's the Mockingbird?" Children's Literature from the 1920s to the Present.
Egoff, Sheila
Theory into Practice, v21 n4 p239-46 Fall 1982
Children's literature is surveyed, beginning with Victorian authors and concentrating on twentieth century children's books written in the United States. The argument is made that the "problem novel," now so popular in the United States, does not extend the reader's experience, and that it is driving out finer kinds of children's books. (PP)
