  • Who Writes for Black Children' African American Children's Literature
           before 1900 ed. by Katharine Capshaw and Anna Mae Duane (review)
    • Abstract: Critical anthologies usually reflect the work in an established field, sometimes they intervene and serve to reshape that field, and only very rarely do they actively create a new area of study. Who Writes for Black Children' African American Children's Literature before 1900, the splendid collection edited by Katharine Capshaw and Anna Mae Duane, achieves such a transformation. Most scholars of African American literature, book history, and children's literature have presumed that no one wrote for black children before the twentieth century. As readers of this journal know well, the misrepresentation and underrepresentation of black children in children's literature stretches into the present. "We, like the ... Read More

  • Adulthood in Children's Literature by Vanessa Joosen (review)
    • Abstract: The cover of Vanessa Joosen's 2018 Adulthood in Children's Literature features a picture of four children trying to have a sneak peek into their parents' bedroom through a giant keyhole surrounded by a wall. The illustration, taken from Marita De Sterck and An Candaele's picture book Koekeloeren (2008) and analyzed in the introduction, accurately captures the contents of Joosen's monograph. Adulthood in Children's Literature takes its readers on an unexpected and fascinating journey that helps them to better see how adulthood, a notion so familiar, yet a "blind space" of children literature, is framed and fashioned as a stage of life in books for the youngest readers. Moreover, Joosen shows how adulthood is ... Read More

  • Growing Up Asian American in Young Adult Fiction ed. by Ymitri Mathison
           (review)
    • Abstract: Growing Up Asian American in Young Adult Fiction, edited by Ymitri Mathison, features ten essays that consider how a variety of YA novels by Asian American authors "go beyond the stereotypes that Asian American children and adults face . . . by depicting how their characters define their unique identities within both mainstream society and their ethnic communities and families" (Mathison 3–4). As Mathison asserts, "such identity work is not new"; even so, she contends that focusing exclusively on how such identity work is taken up in YA novels by Asian American authors and featuring Asian American adolescents certainly is (4). As such, Mathison's collection is an important book because it highlights a growing body ... Read More

  • Fashioning Alice: The Career of Lewis Carroll's Icon, 1860–1901 by
           Kiera Vaclavik (review)
    • Abstract: Close your eyes and picture Alice. What is she wearing' Odds are you have in mind a blue dress with a white apron, plain white or black-and-white striped tights, black patent shoes with a bar strap and a black, well, Alice band. How has this ensemble come to be ingrained upon the popular imagination' Author Lewis Carroll suggested few details of clothing in the texts of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871). The first published illustrations, those of Sir John Tenniel, are black and white. The first authorized colored illustration of Alice depicts her in a yellow dress with blue trim. So our imagined Alice is not strictly down to any ... Read More

  • Figuring Korean Futures: Children's Literature in Modern Korea by Dafna
           Zur (review)
    • Abstract: U.S. President Donald Trump's meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June 2018 and February 2019—and, more recently in June 2019, when Trump became the first sitting president to enter North Korean territory—placed international attention on the politically divided Korean peninsula. Unfortunately, however, few people are familiar with Korea's rich and complex history. The nation-states now identified as North and South Korea comprised a single country unified by a shared history, culture, and language until the Korean War in 1950–53. As a result of the war, the peninsula was divided into a democratic southern state allied with the United States and a communist northern state allied with China and the ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The essays for this issue of The Lion and Unicorn explore degrees of agency in texts for young audiences, mapping responses to climate, bullying, and ideologies of gender, race, and imperialism across three centuries.Roxanne Harde's "'Plus, you children': Growing Ecocitizens in Three American Children's Novels" uses an ecocritical approach to explore the ways three very different YA novels, in sometimes surprising ways, promote environmental consciousness in young readers. Harde argues that Chabon's Summerland, L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, and Lore's I Am Number Four can all be read from an ecocritical point of view. All three novels, using migration as a trope, ultimately illustrate the importance of the ... Read More

  • "Plus, you children": Growing Ecocitizens in Three American Children's
           Novels
    • Abstract: As they begin their quest to save the Earth, the young protagonists of Michael Chabon's Summerland are informed by an elderly baseball scout that they're simply not up to the task. They don't understand the connected worlds they must move among; they're not yet proficient at the sport they must play to save all of creation, and they are, as he states in the vernacular, merely children, as in "you [are] children." However, his phrasing also suggests that their youth is a positive attribute, a "plus," and that perhaps the only people who can (and must) address ecological disaster are children. In a study of environmental theory and texts for children that "thematize contemporary ecological issues," Geraldine Massey ... Read More

  • "Perversity shews itself so early": Changing Perceptions of Bullying from
           Late Eighteenth Century to Victorian Children's Literature
    • Abstract: In her 2016 book, Unbroken Brain, journalist Maia Szalavitz summed up recent research on the effects of childhood and adolescent bullying: "because of its ripple effects on children's social lives and self-images, protracted bullying can sometimes cause a lifetime of pain" (87). Today, bullying is considered a grave threat to children's health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services sponsors the website Stopbullying.gov, which informs readers that "[k]ids who are bullied are more likely to experience: [d]epression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy." According to the website, the solution to ... Read More

  • Junior Brides in Junior Novels: Teen Wedding Dreams and Female Agency in
           Postwar American Girls' Fiction
    • Abstract: From the early 1940s to the late 1960s, junior novels for girls enjoyed tremendous popularity. These novels were, Anne Scott MacLeod writes, "like letters from another country where the climate is milder and the road to maturity less stony" (49). While the road may have been less stony, it was certainly straighter and narrower: the preoccupations of many of these books—dances, dresses, soda shops, and cute, clean-cut boys—make the lives of its middle-class white heroines seem painfully claustrophobic. At the time, many critics denounced such books with epithets including "sugar puff," "antiseptic," "sweet syrup," "ersatz," and "inconsequential" (qtd. in Thompson 375).Yet although they bear very little resemblance ...

  • Imperialism and the Politics of Childhood Innocence in Peter Pan and Wendy
    • Abstract: Modernist writers such as Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, or T. S. Eliot reacted to World War I, industrialization, urbanization, immigration, and capitalism, which isolated and alienated individuals and pushed them into severe loneliness, by turning toward already existing modernist aesthetic as represented by painters, philosophers, and architects such as Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Friedrich Nietzsche, Henri Bergson, and Frank Lloyd Wright.Similarly, children's literature authors adopted literary techniques and thematic issues associated with Modernism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. According to Kimberley Reynolds, who explores Modernism in children's literature in Left Out: The Forgotten ... Read More
