  • "What Goes Up Must Come Down": The Twenty-One Balloons and the Politics of
           Lighter-Than-Air Fantasy
    • Abstract: Published in 1947, as the major European colonial empires stood on the brink of disintegration, William Pène du Bois's The Twenty-One Balloons is in many ways a joyfully retro celebration of high imperialism. Set in the late nineteenth century, the age of hot-air balloon ascensions, Jules Verne, and World's Fairs, the novel combines all of these elements with the lightest of touches. Praised for its originality, humor, "delightful mixture of scientific fact and ludicrous non[sense]," and "incomparable illustrations"—gorgeously detailed monochromatic drawings by the author—The Twenty-One Balloons was an immediate success (Green et al. 411). In 1948, the novel was recognized as the previous year's most distinguished ... Read More

  • Under Empty Skies: The Absence of God and Parental Replacement in Israeli
           Children's Literature on the Jewish Holocaust
    • Abstract: So what's left, my child, I am asking you. Whether there is a God or there isn't a God is no longer the most important question. Is there or isn't there a human being'The question and answer that open this essay, from the children's story on the Holocaust "Shalosh Tmunot—veOd Tmuna" (Three Photos—and Another Photo)1 by Nava Semel, highlights a complex issue in post-Holocaust writing. Many philosophers and writers grappled with the question "Where was God during the Holocaust'" in an attempt to find the roots and origins of the evil and suffering experienced during this human catastrophe. Theologically, this question generates various answers: those of despair—God's lack of existence, the abandoning of faith in God ... Read More

  • Being an Athlete or Being a Girl: Selective Identities among Fictional
           Female Athletes Who Play with the Boys
    • Abstract: In February 2018, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) dedicated its annual World Radio Day to the theme of "Radio and Sports" and issued a call for that medium to provide more equal and equitable coverage of women athletes. Thanks to the media package made available to radio stations around the globe, listeners could hear the voices of young women articulating their athletic goals: One young athlete shares her dream of becoming a medal-winning swimmer, describing the hard work and potential sacrifices that she will make to be among the best in the pool. And when she reaches that defining moment of success and finds herself standing on the pedestal, she imagines that ... Read More

           Young Adult Literature
    • Abstract: My ballet teacher pinched the extra inches … and told me to stop eating maplewalnut ice cream.Young women in the early twenty-first century are caught in an intricate network of disciplinary practices that govern their bodies. In Western culture specifically, they must routinely attend to their hair, makeup, styles of dress, exercise regimens, and bodies, all in service of preserving a particular socially constructed beauty standard that privileges the white, the able-bodied, and the middle-class.1 Entrenched within these practices is young women's relationship to food—when they eat, what they eat, and how much they eat—which often results in the development of body dysmorphia or, in more extreme situations, eating ...

    • Abstract: The ABC of It: Why Children's Books Matter. By Leonard S. Marcus. Foreword by Lisa Van Drasek. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2019.The origins of this lavishly illustrated book can be traced back to the author's curating of an exhibition on the history of children's literature at the New York Public Library in 2013–14. In many ways this book functions as a catalog for this exhibition, but goes farther by including additional material, especially from the University of Minnesota's Kerlan Collection of Children's Literature. The volume includes full-color images from key works of children's literature from Puritan times to the present.Chromographia: American Literature and the Modernization of Color. By ... Read More

  • Picture-Book Professors: Academia and Children's Literature by Melissa M.
           Terras (review)
    • Abstract: In the current political atmosphere, in which academic rhetoric is equated with deception and the scientific proof of climate change is dismissed as fabrication, it is important to consider the portrayal of academia in our culture. Not only does the Trump administration implicitly discredit research on climate change by contesting mainstream scientific thinking, but it also diminishes the credibility of scientific processes in general. Melissa Terras's slim but comprehensive study on the representation of professors in picture books fits within this rising skepticism and suspicion regarding academics. Picture-Book Professors unearths the image that our culture has been adumbrating about teachers and scholars with ... Read More

  • Prizing Children's Literature: The Cultural Politics of Children's Book
           Awards ed. by Kenneth B. Kidd and Joseph T. Thomas, Jr (review)
    • Abstract: Kenneth B. Kidd and Joseph T. Thomas's study explores the prizing practices of children's literature in Australia, Canada, and the United States. As Kidd and Thomas note in the opening line of this anthology, "the prizing of children's books has a long history" (1). At least since the establishment of the Newbery Medal in 1922 and the Caldecott Medal in 1937, there has been ongoing debate in our field about the merits and value of literary prizing and the cultural ideologies that motivate the selection of award-winning children's books. Noting that there are now more than three hundred awards for English-language texts and authors, the editors explain that this collection was born out of their desire to advance ... Read More

           Fiction ed. by Jacob Stratman (review)
    • Abstract: Teens and the New Religious Landscape is a welcome collection of essays addressing a topic that has often been excluded by academic scholars—religion—and its reemergence in contemporary young adult literature. Jacob Stratman is well qualified to lead the effort: not only has he edited a previous collection of essays, Lessons in Disability: Essays on Teaching with Young Adult Literature (2016), but he has also written about the Christian tradition in American literature, as in "Harriet Beecher Stowe's Preachers of the Swamp: Dred and the Jeremiad" in Christianity and Literature (2008), and is supported by "administrators, my colleagues, and my students" at his home institution, John Brown University, a private ...

  • Was the Cat in the Hat Black': The Hidden Racism of Children's
           Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books by Philip Nel (review)
    • Abstract: Philip Nel's study begins with the author recalling the vague sense of discomfort that he felt about his Golliwog doll while growing up as a white American in the 1970s. Although as a child he lacked conscious understanding of the doll's racial significations, the adult Nel wonders if his dislike of the doll might have been an unconscious response to its embodiment of a grotesque racial caricature. This sense of discomfort becomes the driving affect of Was the Cat in the Hat Black', which aims to expose the "hidden" racism of children's literature. Nel observes, "To admit racist content in cherished memories unsettles not only adults' nostalgia, but their sense of themselves" (22). The book undertakes this project ... Read More

  • Born Criminal: Matilda Joslyn Gage, Radical Suffragist by Angelica Shirley
           Carpenter, and: Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Boys and Gay Men Love The
           Wizard of Oz by Dee Michel (review)
    • Abstract: In 1900, L. Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a work of children's literature far ahead of its time regarding gender and gender roles. In Oz, girls can go on adventures, females can be knowledgeable political leaders, and there are no damsels in distress. In fact, Baum's Dorothy rescues her male travel companions as often as they rescue her, and his male characters are gentle, sensitive, and emotionally intelligent. They are as happy to follow the lead of a young girl as they are to offer her advice. Baum's radical shift on gender norms led to the book's banning by the Chicago Public Library in 1928, but is also part of what keeps the book relevant almost 120 years after its debut. Two recent ...

           Anne Boyd Rioux (review)
    • Abstract: The celebration of the 150th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women began in 2018 and continues this year. Scholars have engaged in blogs, panels, public lectures, and other activities to commemorate the occasion, asking, among other questions, why has Little Women remained significant' What is its legacy' Will it continue to resonate with readers, adapters, and scholars'The answer to that last question is that it does, as Anne Boyd Rioux establishes in her study. Rioux discusses Alcott's life, work, and milieu, tracks the novel's adaptation history and its illustrated editions, and catalogs the homage paid by countless fans. Supplementing the reception work of Beverly Lyon Clark, Barbara Sicherman, and ... Read More

  • And This Little Piggy Had None: Challenging the Dominant Discourse on
           Farmed Animals in Children's Picturebooks by Janae Dimick (review)
    • Abstract: In the beginning of And This Little Piggy Had None, Janae Dimick recounts her memory of discovering reading and the "exhilaration that I experienced upon realization that pictures and words told stories" (39). With this in mind, Dimick's book critically analyzes what children learn about farmed animals from nonfiction picture books and how this can shape perceptions and behaviors that continue throughout adulthood. She examines five recent (since 2009) books chosen after browsing many bookstores. Her discussion revolves around the potential impacts of the discrepancy between the lives of farmed animals as presented in the texts and the reality of farmed animal life.Chapters 1 and 3 outline Dimick's theoretical ...
