  • Introduction: Combinations
    • Abstract: That the process of looking at separate things together—comparing, contrasting, considering from different angles—teaches us is a fundamental premise even of books for the very young. “One fish / two fish / red fish / blue fish,” begins a classic work by Dr. Seuss, continuing, “Black fish / blue fish / old fish / new fish. / This one has / a little star. / This one has a little car. / Say! what a lot / of fish there are” (n. pag.). And while the two blue fish in the quoted passage may well be a single fish pictured twice (Seussian style is such that it’s hard to make this call), context matters: the blue fish doesn’t look quite the same when it’s with the black fish as it did with the red fish, and in the next ...

  • The Journey to American Womanhood: Travel and Feminist Christian Rebellion
           in Susan Warner’s The Wide, Wide World and Martha Finley’s Elsie’s
           Girlhood
    • Abstract: In chapter 6 of Martha Finley’s Elsie’s Girlhood (1872), the third volume of a twenty-eight-book series published from 1867 to 1905, Lucy Carrington invites Elsie Dinsmore to spend a week at Ashlands, her family’s estate. After promising Lucy that she will ask for her father’s permission to visit, Elsie retreats outside to read her new book, Susan Warner’s 1850 The Wide, Wide World, in the open air. Becoming absorbed in the story, she finds herself “so full of sympathy for little Ellen that tears were dropping upon the page as she read” (63). While Elsie is so “deeply absorbed,” her cousin Arthur sneaks up on her, beats her, and sneers at her and her “namby-pamby girl’s story” (63). It is no accident that Elsie ... Read More

  • The Transatlantic Reception of The Chronicles of Narnia and of C. S. Lewis
           as a Children’s Book Author in the 1950s and 1960s, Compared
    • Abstract: In short, do we not live in an age of kiddylit renaissance so that if Milton were living at this hour he’d be writing about C. S. Lewis rather than the other way round'In the nearly seventy years since their publication, The Chronicles of Narnia have been publicly celebrated and privately treasured by readers, while writers and critics have scrutinized, exploited, criticized, and defended them. That so much ink has been spilled over these books has been a matter of yet further dismay, delight, and discussion. Unquestionably, the Narnia books have enchanted and entertained countless children and adults since their publication in the 1950s and are counted by many as “classics” of the canon. To date, however, most ... Read More

  • Death in Signifiers: Words and Pictures in Three International Picture
           Books
    • Abstract: Many children’s picture books depict grandparents who have significant relationships with their grandchildren. Scholars writing about such characters have focused on different aspects of this bond.1 As demonstrated in Riitta Oittinen and Blanca-Ana Roig Rechou’s edited collection A Grey Background in Children’s Literature, these studies include subjects sometimes considered taboo in works for young children, such as disease, war, sex, violence, and disability. Death is one of the central topics in a number of recent books addressed to children, as has been analyzed by scholars including Ana Margarida Ramos, Teresa de L. F. Mendes, Célia Regina D. Fernandes, Camila C. F. Mendes Silva and Mariele Rodrigues Correa ... Read More

  • On Letting The Outsiders In: Will Grayson, Will Grayson and the Lonely
           Work of Individuation in Young Adult Literature
    • Abstract: I shun father and mother and wife and brother, when my genius calls.The problem is not that I don’t love my mother and father. The problem is that I don’t know how to love them.In John Green and David Levithan’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson (2010), one of the two eponymous protagonists notes that he prefers “noticing” girls to interacting with them, and thinks that unrequited love is ideal since it “can survive in a way that once-requited love cannot” (47, 43). In doing so, Will Grayson reveals his detachment from community and aligns himself with the many young adult protagonists who watch life from the sidelines: J. D. Salinger’s Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye (1951), who confides to the reader that he ... Read More

  • Unbinding the Victorian Girl: Corsetry and Neo-Victorian Young Adult
           Literature
    • Abstract: In E. K. Johnston’s 2017 novel That Inevitable Victorian Thing, the author imagines a neo-Victorian British Empire that both works with the racial and gender inequities of the actual Victorian era and reimagines what that era’s essentials mean for a contemporary cast of characters. A multiracial princess, Margaret, plans an elaborate disguise for her debut so that she can meet the people on her own terms. Among her preparations are learning the major families of Toronto (an important social scene in this new Empire) and preparing her wardrobe for her trip. Margaret tells us, “And, of course, there was the corset” (7). When she is told that it improves her posture,“I can feel my kidneys blending,” she had replied ... Read More

  • Who Writes for Black Children' African American Children’s
           Literature before 1900 ed. by Katharine Capshaw and Anna Mae Duane
           (review)
    • Abstract: This fascinating anthology recovers and analyzes African American children’s literature prior to 1900, emphasizing a broad body of work integral to black family reading that sheds new light on the function of literature and literacy in black communities both before and after emancipation. Editors Katharine Capshaw and Anna Mae Duane acknowledge that lack of evidence from this time period and antiliteracy laws that made it illegal to teach slaves to read make it impossible to reconstruct the historical record of African American children and adults who actually read texts authored by black writers. Therefore, the contributors use various forms of evidence to identify these texts’ actual readers and the implied ... Read More

  • Representing the Rainbow in Young Adult Literature: LGBTQ+ Content since
           1969 by Christine A. Jenkins and Michael Cart (review)
    • Abstract: Perhaps the first thing to say about Christine A. Jenkins and Michael Cart’s Representing the Rainbow is that I am sincerely grateful that this book exists. As the authors note on the first page of their introduction, “Although statistics measuring the number of YA titles published each year are fugitive, we estimate the average number to be roughly two thousand per year, a number significantly larger than the yearly average of twenty titles with LGBTQ+ content” (xi; orig. emphasis). Yet the total number of such books has not only steadily added up over the decades since 1969 (the year of publication of John Donovan’s groundbreaking I’ll Get There. It Better Be Worth the Trip.), but it has also increased in ... Read More

  • Wild Things: The Joy of Reading Children’s Literature as an Adult by
           Bruce Handy, and: Wild Things! Acts of Mischief in Children’s Literature
           by Betsy Bird, Julie Danielson, and Peter D. Sieruta (review)
    • Abstract: These two books have more in common than their titles, give or take an exclamation point. Both are engaging and lively overviews of children’s literature written for general readers. They are not academic works, nor are they intended to be. They are published for a wider, nonacademic audience: adults, including parents, who continue to read children’s and adolescent texts. These readers are interested in additional information about the authors and desire a fuller understanding of the cultural and historical context of the books and how these texts have been interpreted.A contributing editor to Vanity Fair, Bruce Handy explains that the inspiration for his Wild Things was his becoming a parent, which enabled him ...

  • Wild Child: Intensive Parenting and Posthumanist Ethics by Naomi
           Morgenstern (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Naomi Morgenstern carefully crafts her conception of how recent cultural developments question the humanistic perception of the human as autonomous and distinct from nature. Her claim is that these developments “have helped precipitate a posthumanist encounter with the ethics of reproductive choice and with the figure of the wild child” (2). Using literary analysis, she focuses on how parents interact with their children and their choice to reproduce in several texts explicitly showing parent-child relations. Throughout the book Morgenstern skillfully traces the relations between parents and children to call attention to the ways in which parents within the primary texts engage their children to move ...

  • There’s a Mystery There: The Primal Vision of Maurice Sendak by
           Jonathan Cott (review)
    • Abstract: To borrow from Jonathan Cott’s title, there mysteriously is a dearth of scholarship on Maurice Sendak, an author and illustrator whom we frequently include on our lists of the most important children’s book artists. Despite there being a few booklength projects on Sendak—Making Mischief: A Maurice Sendak Appreciation (2009), The Art of Maurice Sendak: 1980 to Present (2013), and Maurice Sendak: A Celebration of the Artist and His Work (2013)—there remain only two truly academic studies: John Cech’s Angels and Wild Things: The Archetypical Poetics of Maurice Sendak (1996) and Selma Lane’s The Art of Maurice Sendak (1998). Perhaps such absence suggests the complicated position of picture books within the larger world ... Read More

  • Contemporary British Children’s Fiction and Cosmopolitanism by Fiona
           McCulloch (review)
    • Abstract: Fiona McCulloch convincingly draws a connection between the contemporary British political climate and how young adult texts approach difference. McCulloch moves beyond multiculturalism by turning to the concept of cosmopolitanism, which she defines as “allow[ing] for a space in which differences can be celebrated and communitarian empathy offered” (2). She argues that this concept of cosmopolitanism, while potentially fraught with the same problems as multiculturalism, can be more useful because it focuses on celebrating difference and making connections through mutual empathy rather than erasing difference in order to create ordered sameness. She finds that this concept has been applied predominantly to adults ... Read More

  • Screen Adaptations and the Politics of Childhood: Transforming
           Children’s Literature into Film by Robyn McCallum (review)
    • Abstract: As Robyn McCallum demonstrates in Screen Adaptations and the Politics of Childhood, cinematic adaptations of children’s texts raise complex questions concerning the transmission and transformation of cultural ideologies. In today’s explosive media landscape, examples of this politics abound. For instance, when Disney promised to release a live-action version of its 1998 animated feature Mulan by 2020, critics of all stripes, from the professional to the amateur, quickly launched into speculation. Would the new film be a powerful and all-too-rare opportunity to see Asian actors starring in a major Hollywood film, or would it be a reinscription of what many have characterized as the original animation’s Orientalist ...

  • From Colonial to Modern: Transnational Girlhood in Canadian, Australian,
           and New Zealand Children’s Literature, 1840–1940 by Michelle J. Smith,
           Kristine Moruzi, and Clare Bradford (review)
    • Abstract: Michelle J. Smith, Kristine Moruzi, and Clare Bradford’s From Colonial to Modern sheds light on the development of colonial girlhoods between 1840 and 1940 in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The authors’ argument centers on the notion of “transnational girlhood,” which offers a more flexible and inclusive way than does “imperial girlhood” of talking about the contemporary models of girlhood offered to both British and colonial girls through literature and periodicals. This approach allows “narratives from different nations [to be] placed alongside one another and examined both for their distinct depictions of colonial conditions for girls and for their similarities” (11), rather than focusing exclusively on ...
