  • Genres
    • Abstract: Picking up from our most recent special issue and its focus on genre in African American children’s literature, the articles included in this general issue focus on a range of genres, and especially on what happens when genres collide. How may the characteristics of one set of texts inflect the content, outlook, characterization, or theme of a work affiliated with another set? Together, the articles in ChLAQ 42.1 help illustrate the dynamism of children’s and young adult literature as a body of work that uses the preoccupations made familiar through one genre to complicate others. We begin with a little-studied group of American texts, examined in Allison Speicher’s “The School of One Scholar: ... Read More

  • The School of One Scholar: Schoolmistress-Schoolboy Romance in the
           Nineteenth-Century School Story
    • Abstract: In Warren Burton’s The District School as It Was (1833), the narrator begins attending school when he is only three. He fears leaving home until he meets his teacher, Mary Smith, a woman highly “qualified to interest, and to gain the love of children” (19). She quickly gains the narrator’s trust when she walks him to school on his first day: “she so gently took my quivering little hand, and so tenderly stooped and kissed my cheek, and said such soothing and winning words, that my timidity was gone at once” (20). In this scene, the narrator is handed off from mother to teacher, making a seamless transition from home to school. Indeed, he himself later makes the connection between his two female caregivers ...

  • Contact Zones: Humans, Horses, and the Stories of Marguerite Henry
    • Abstract: During her long career, children’s writer Marguerite Henry received a Newbery Medal and two Newbery Honor awards for her books on horses. Despite this acclaim, her enduringly popular novels have received little scholarly attention to date, an oversight that is perhaps explained by common interpretations of the genre in which she wrote. While such scholars as Mary Cadogan and Patricia Craig have dismissed horse stories for their “absurd, exasperating connotations,” efforts to account for these stories’ appeal typically focus on the role that horses play in fulfilling children’s emotional needs. An essay by Bernard Poll in Elementary English, for example, is illustrated with pictures from Henry’s books ... Read More

  • “Soda attracted girls like honey draws flies”: The Outsiders, the Boy
           Band Formula, and Adolescent Sexuality
    • Abstract: In what has become an oft-repeated comment, S. E. Hinton’s 1967 young adult novel, The Outsiders, inaugurated an entirely new style of writing for young people. As Michael Cart has written, prior to the release of Hinton’s text, narratives for teens “were set in a Saturday Evening Post world of white faces and white picket fences surrounding small-town, middle-class lives where the worst thing that could happen would be a misunderstanding that threatened to leave someone dateless for the junior prom” (20). The Outsiders provided a counterpoint and even a corrective to this trend. With its presentation of teenage gangs, street violence, and poverty, the narrative contained profoundly different literary ... Read More

  • Adaptations of Play Songs in Ghanaian Children’s and (Young) Adult
           Drama
    • Abstract: This article looks at the adaptation of Akan1 children’s play songs as a thematic and structural frame in three Ghanaian plays: Ama Ata Aidoo’s The Dilemma of a Ghost (1965), Efua Theodora Sutherland’s Tahinta! A Rhythm Play for Children (1968), and Martin Okyere Owusu’s The Story Ananse Told (1970). Sutherland’s play, as its subtitle indicates, is intended for children, while Aidoo’s and Owusu’s works have been performed by both adults and high school students in the decades since they were first published. Indeed, several Ghanaian plays published in the 1960s and ’70s were written for an emerging circuit of educational theaters publicized as suitable for young adults. Anthony Graham-White and Alain Ricard ... Read More

  • The Monstrous-Feminine and Hegemonic Masculinity in Rick Yancey’s
           The Monstrumologist
    • Abstract: Historically and developmentally, masculinity has been defined as the flight from women, the repudiation of femininity. There are monsters like the Anthropophagi, and then there are the monsters of a more banal bent. On one level, it is possible to read Rick Yancey’s The Monstrumologist (2009), a work of young adult gothic fiction, as representing the psychological process wherein the adolescent, having undergone disturbances to his or her identity, once again experiences a desire to fuse with the Other. In young adult literature, the latter is stereotypically presented using the trope of the dead mother (Coats 144). In this regard, the novel is not groundbreaking. What makes The ... Read More

    • Abstract: Arthur Mee: A Biography. By Keith Crawford. Cambridge: Lutterworth, 2016. Drawing heavily on a trove of detailed letters, biographer Keith Crawford provides a thorough account of Mee’s career as a journalist, editor, and author of nonfiction works for children during the early decades of the twentieth century. Mee is best remembered today for editing a popular British children’s magazine, The Children’s Encyclopedia, but as Crawford makes clear, he was also a prolific writer and editor of books that were read by children throughout the British Empire prior to the Second World War.

  • The Early Reader in Children’s Literature and Culture: Theorizing Books
           for Beginning Readers ed. by Jennifer M. Miskec and Annette Wannamaker
           (review)
    • Abstract: Routledge’s long-standing Children’s Literature and Culture series was begun under the aegis of Garland Publishing and initially edited by Jack Zipes. Now ably vetted by Philip Nel, the series provides a major resource for the study of children’s literature in English. (Obligatory conflict notice here: Like many other contributors to this journal, I published an early title in this series myself, in the days of Zipes and Garland.) Everything about this series is useful and attractive except for its horrible hardback prices. No doubt Routledge can make a commercial case for these charges, but they are discouraging to interested scholars, and few libraries have bottomless pockets either. Just as ... Read More

  • Cinderella across Cultures: New Directions and Interdisciplinary
           Perspectives ed. by Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère, Gillian Lathey
           and Monika Woźniak (review)
    • Abstract: The twenty-sixth volume to date in Wayne State University Press’s Fairy-Tale Studies series edited by Donald Haase, Cinderella across Cultures is the twenty-first-century answer to Alan Dundes’s 1982 Cinderella: A Casebook. In that innovative approach to the study of a folktale spread across cultures, time, and disciplines, Dundes pulled together essays examining the roots of the Cinderella story in Italy, China, Germany, and France; extended that scope to stories of Cinderella in Russia, Greece, Africa, and Iran; and added in essays taking psychological, folkloristic, and linguistic approaches to understanding the motifs of the story. Cinderella across Cultures takes a similar interdisciplinary approach ... Read More

  • Little Red Readings: Historical Materialist Perspectives on Children’s
           Literature ed. by Angela E. Hubler (review)
    • Abstract: While the rising emphasis on multiculturalism has normalized conversations about race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and more, talking about class still carries with it a hint of the taboo. Angela E. Hubler’s collection of thirteen essays is a timely contribution not only to the field of children’s literature studies, but also to historical materialism and Marxist analysis overall. In her introduction, Hubler considers the manner in which the United States is in many ways toxic to Marxist thought and theory. The ideology of American society, built on economic advancement through hard work and pulling oneself up by one’s bootstraps, “insists upon the irrelevance of class” (xv). In this cultural ...

  • Girls’ Series Fiction and American Popular Culture ed. by LuElla

    • Abstract: Part of the Children and Youth in Popular Culture series, LuElla D’Amico’s collection aims to open up spaces for further academic work that both validates girls’ reading experiences and critically analyzes historical and contemporary girls’ series. Described as “a targeted, inquisitive study about girls’ series and their sweeping influence on the girls that read them and the culture that produces them,” the collection interrogates American perceptions of gender and the role of series fiction in the development of identity (ix). For the purposes of her collection, D’Amico defines a series as a set of books “targeting girls that feature the same character or characters for more than three books” (x), and the ... Read More

  • The Faerie Queene as Children’s Literature: Victorian and Edwardian
           Retellings in Words and Pictures by Velma Bourgeois Richmond (review)
    • Abstract: Velma Bourgeois Richmond takes an in-depth look at adaptations of Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene produced for children in the Victorian and Edwardian eras in England, in storybooks, schoolbooks, and literary histories. Richmond also explores American interpretations during the same period. Her study of medieval romance, including especially Guy of Warwick, fueled her interest in The Faerie Queene, leading to her investigation of how attitudes and ideas of the Renaissance and Reformation led to changes in the genre. In this work, Richmond attempts to analyze how adaptations of The Faerie Queene for children demonstrate the prevailing mood of the eras in which they were written. Richmond sets the stage in ...
