Manifold Narratives: Metafiction and Ideology in Picture Books.
Trites, Roberta Seelinger
Children's Literature in Education, v25 n4 p225-42 Dec 1994
Discusses children's pictures termed "visual manifold narratives" (picture books that develop more than one narrative line by including two or more sets of separate pictures on the page). Discusses some uses of the manifold narrative, the reader's role in constructing meaning, subversion of the linear narrative, the metafictionality of manifold narratives, and suturing an ideology in the manifold narrative.
