Enquiring Mind, Rebellious Spirit: Alice and Pinocchio as Nonmodel Children.
Lucas, Ann Lawson
Children's Literature in Education, v30 n3 p157-69 Sep 1999
Discusses Pinocchio and Alice in Wonderland considering how both characters have acquired a mythic status as iconic images of individualism in childhood. Discusses how they can be termed pivotal since they embodied an abrupt detachment from a long-established tradition in writing for children and a dramatic departure in a radical new direction leading to the 20th century.
