The Ambivalent Urban Idyll: "The Saturdays" and "Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown."
Mills, Claudia
Children's Literature in Education, v29 n4 p211-21 Dec 1998
Examines two well-loved American children's books (published in the 1940s), showing how they reflect ambivalent attitudes toward the city that run deep in American culture and literature. Notes that both novels present remarkably similar urban idylls--idealized visions of the wondrous opportunities offered by the city to artistically gifted children. (SR)
