  • The Nation and the Child: Nation Building in Hebrew Children's Literature,
           1930–1970 by Yael Darr (review)
    • Abstract: It is an old but important question: How does children's literature provide a location to teach, form, even indoctrinate children in the values of their culture and nation' Yael Darr's The Nation and the Child surveys the ways in which leading Israeli children's writers and the editors and publishing houses that supported them did just that.Darr brings considerable expertise to her project. Her first and second books treated aspects of this question, focusing first on children's literature produced in the Yishuv (pre-state Jewish settlement) and second on the political institutions that created a canon for children based on the Labor movement's ideals. The present volume extends Darr's research into the 1950s and ... Read More

  • The Disney Musical on Stage and Screen: Critical Approaches from "Snow
           White" to "Frozen" ed. by George Rodosthenous (review)
    • Abstract: Theater produced for children remains one of the most understudied areas of our field. This neglect seems especially surprising since Broadway alone abounds with shows catering to a family-friendly audience, including Anastasia, School of Rock, and Wicked. Recent scholarly work, including a 2012 special issue of The Lion and the Unicorn on "Children and Theatre" (guest edited by Marah Gubar), has worked to open up this area of inquiry. And now, with the publication of George Rodosthenous's edited collection, scholars have focused their attention on perhaps the most influential theater producer globally, the Walt Disney Company. In so doing, they lay the groundwork for future studies of the influence of theater in ... Read More

  • Fairies: A Dangerous History by Richard Sugg (review)
    • Abstract: Richard Sugg's Fairies: A Dangerous History reflects upon the nature of fairies, their representation within oral tradition and popular culture, and humans' relationship to the fantastic. Sugg asserts in his introduction that his goal is not to claim that fairies are real, but rather "to get fairies into your head" (9). In this regard, he succeeds. His descriptions of fairy encounters from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have the feel of folkloric retellings heard at the knee of an elder community member.Sugg's introduction presents the first two of many fairy sightings throughout the book. He notes fairies' status as being the lowest in the "hierarchy of the irrational" (14). The first chapter, "Origins ... Read More

  • Broadening Critical Boundaries in Children's and Young Adult Literature
           and Culture by Amie A. Doughty (review)
    • Abstract: The last few years have seen a great deal of expansion within children's literature studies to include more critical analysis both of children's culture (as opposed to straight-up literature) and of young adult literature and culture as a related but distinct field. There have been many exciting new publications in these areas, including volumes examining comics and graphic novels, social media, nonfiction, race, and environmental literature—to name but a few. I was therefore surprised to read the title of this volume: "Broadening Critical Boundaries" seems remarkably vague in light of the work already undertaken. The very short introduction to this volume unfortunately confirms this impression: only four and a ... Read More

    • Abstract: This issue marks the approaching end of another ChLA year—fittingly, the Association measures time from annual conference to annual conference, ignoring the conventions of mere calendars—and thus also of my term as editor. I leave the journal in the capable hands of Sara Day; her associate editors, Balaka Basu, Sonya Sawyer Fritz, and Joseph Michael Sommers; and book review editor Mark West. Sara, who has been an associate editor of the journal throughout my tenure, and Mark, who as book review editor has now seen quite a number of editorial teams come and go, are both owed special thanks for reenlisting. I want also to thank Sara and my other associate editor, Anne Morey; Kris Zgorski and others at Johns Hopkins ... Read More

  • The Tomboy Tradition: Taming Adolescent Ambition from 1869 to 2018
    • Abstract: There is a long tradition in American texts for and about adolescent girls—since at least the "invention" of adolescence itself1—of self-willed, passionate, often deeply earnest girl characters whose aspirations go beyond the roles prescribed them by their societies' conceptions of gender. We have an equally long tradition of taming these girls into more culturally appropriate versions of femininity. Michelle Ann Abate and Karin Quimby, among other scholars of nineteenth-century girlhood and adolescence, have studied a version of this formulaic suppression of inappropriate gendered behavior in tomboy texts of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and have called this suppression "tomboy taming."2 While ...

  • Bedtime Books, the Bedtime Story Ritual, and Goodnight Moon
    • Abstract: You and I know there are just two ways of looking at the bedtime story—ours and theirs.In 2013, in the pages of this journal, Karin Westman proposed a "consciousness-raising project" that "revise[s] existing narratives of literary history" by showing how "children's literature writes large the ability of genre to ground a text in the initial moments of historical production, the moments of re-production, and the moments of reception" (464, 466). In support of this approach, she offered the example of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon as a work for which we "must consider moments of its re-production and its renewed reception within a number of historically specific generic performances, from that 1947 date of ...

  • Picture-Book Retellings of "The Three Little Pigs": Postmodern Parody,
           Intertextuality, and Metafiction
    • Abstract: Since parody lies in the eye of the beholder, presupposing the reader's decoding abilities, it comes as little surprise that most successful parodic renderings in children's literature are retellings of either fairy tales or nursery rhymes, textual worlds that young readers can immediately identify. David Wiesner's The Three Pigs (2001) and Eugene Trivizas's The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury (1993; henceforth, The Three Little Wolves), are two inventive parodies that expand the potential of the conventional tale and raise a set of intriguing questions for the contemporary reader, whether adult or child. In the English-speaking community of children's literature, Wiesner ... Read More

  • Seeking Refuge Under the Mesquite: Nature Imagery in Guadalupe García
           McCall's Verse Novel
    • Abstract: I saw Gabina, my favorite tree. She was still looking strong. … There is nothing more beautiful and full of life than a healthy álamo with its shimmering leaves rustling in the wind, the play of light on stippled green, the quiet enduring strength of a life bending as it must. Irma had brought me here to gather what strength I could, in Gabina's tender, embracing shade.In Chicana writer Denise Chávez's 2001 novel Loving Pedro Infante, the protagonist, Tere Ávila, describes one of the many honest conversations that she has with her best friend and comadre, Irma Granados. What is most striking in these lines is the setting that the always level-headed Irma has chosen for one of their heart-to-hearts: beneath the ... Read More

  • "Pain demands to be felt": Language and Power as Structures in John
           Green's The Fault in Our Stars
    • Abstract: John Green has made a career out of telling stories through an adolescent voice; his popularity with adolescent readers suggests that he is successful in his mimicry of that voice. In The Fault in Our Stars (2012), Green employs the first-person narration of Hazel Lancaster, an adolescent survivor of Stage 4 thyroid cancer, as well as her dialogue with other adolescent characters and with her parents. Hazel's story revolves around her interactions with the people whom she meets at a teen cancer support group, particularly a boy named Augustus Waters. Using a narrative centered upon this particular subgroup of adolescents, Green establishes a finite space within which to explore the ways that adolescents struggle ... Read More

  • Tolkien: Maker of Middle-Earth ed. by Catherine McIlwaine (review)
    • Abstract: Catherine McIlwaine's large, lavishly illustrated catalog of her recent exhibition of the Bodleian Library's J. R. R. Tolkien holdings is well organized, well written (with a minimum of repetition from annotation to annotation), and introduced by six short essays by experts on different aspects of the author's life and work. It opens a window onto Tolkien's imagination and the way it worked, with particular emphasis on the visual element. For any Tolkien scholar, McIlwaine's book will become indispensable.My very first encounter with The Hobbit was a visual one. I was about ten years old and was convalescing after the removal of my appendix. My father, a newly appointed Inspector of Schools, borrowed for me a ... Read More

  • Posthumanism in Young Adult Fiction: Finding Humanity in a Posthuman World
           ed. by Anita Tarr and Donna R. White (review)
    • Abstract: This collection begins by posing the deceptively simple question, "What does it mean to be human'" (ix). In their introduction, Anita Tarr and Donna R. White make it clear that in their view, to be human means to be posthuman. They define the posthumanist position as one that rejects human exceptionalism and boundaried individualism in favor of interconnectedness with other species and the environment (xi). Because of this openness, the liminal space of adolescence, already a complicated developmental stage of exploring identity boundaries, is particularly ripe for posthumanist study. In addition to the introduction, the collection consists of four parts, each of which takes on a different concern of post-humanism ... Read More

  • The Voice of Nature in Ted Hughes's Writing for Children: Correcting
           Culture's Error by Lorraine Kerslake (review)
    • Abstract: As the first book-length study of Ted Hughes's writing for children, Lorraine Kerslake's meticulously researched monograph distinguishes itself from previous ecocritical work on Hughes by its insistence on the importance of the child addressee in the writer's life-long interest in environmental concerns. Drawing extensively on interviews, letters, and other biographical material, Kerslake explores the development of Hughes's environmental sensibility as expressed in an activism intended to engage the young and in a diverse body of children's writing that includes essays, poetry, fiction, and radio plays. Central to her discussion is her contention that Hughes attributed to the natural world a "healing function" ... Read More
