Critical Approaches to Children's Literature

 This timely series brings innovative perspectives to research on children's literature. It offers accessible but sophisticated accounts of contemporary critical approaches and applies them to the study of a diverse range of children's texts - literature, film and multimedia. Critical Approaches to Children's Literature includes monographs from both internationally recognized and emerging scholars. It demonstrates how new voices, new combinations of theories, and new shifts in the scholarship of literary and cultural studies illuminate the study of children's texts.
