Censorship and Children's Literature in Britain Now, or, The Return of Abigail.
Hunt, Peter
Children's Literature in Education, v28 n2 p95-103 Jun 1997
Uses the case of a 1988 children's book called "Abigail at the Beach" to discuss censorship (both visible and invisible) of children's books in Britain. Discusses issues of power, economics and politics, and the status of the Children's Book in a world that is suspicious of it and unsympathetic to it. (SR)
