  • Editorial
    • Abstract: in october 2015, I attended a regional IBBY conference in New York. One of the highlights was a “conversation about illustration” moderated by Paul O. Zelinsky; the illustrators were François Place, Roger Mello, and Lisbeth Zwerger. One of the moments that has stayed with me from that event was when Lisbeth Zwerger showed some of her earliest work, miniature illustrations of some classic fairy tales that she had made as an art student. Zwerger recounted how she had brought them to the publisher Michael Neugebauer, who, impressed by Zwerger’s delicate watercolors, encouraged her to re-draw some of them in a larger format, more suitable for publication. This resulted in Zwerger’s 1977 début as an artist with ... Read More

  • Introduction to “Another Children’s Literature’: Writing by Children
           and Youth” Taking Writing by Children and Youth Seriously
    • Abstract: “Whether children are, like everything else, text or not, . . . we should attend to the texts they fashion out of themselves. . . ‘[C]hildren’s literature’ refers as much to the literature children make as to the literature they may or may not read” In January 2017, marking the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death, Fiona Macdonald claimed in “The Racy Side of Jane Austen” (BBC Culture) that the “stories, dramatic sketches and a spoof history” Austen wrote “between the ages of 11 and 17” reveal “a different side to the British novelist” (my italics). As Professor Kathryn Sutherland argues, “Austen’s earliest writings appear to have little in common with the restrained and realistic society portrayed in ... Read More

  • For “Family and Intimate Visitors Only”: The Influence of Maria
           Edgeworth’s Juvenilia on the Production of Her Adult Dramas
    • Abstract: Scholarship on Maria Edgeworth has tended, not surprisingly, to neglect her juvenilia in favor of her adult authorship. Two reasons can account for this: First, while Edgeworth was a prolific writer from early in her youth, very few examples of her juvenilia survive. Second, the most significant work of juvenilia written by Edgeworth, The Double Disguise, sat unpublished in the Bodleian Library at Oxford until 2014.1 The Double Disguise is a mix between a farce and a comedy of manners that intersects with Edgeworth’s later political concerns about class and social status and signals her turn toward more realistic settings. Written in 1786, when Edgeworth was just eighteen years old, and performed by the ... Read More

  • Children’s Voices from War Zones: Muted by Adult Mediation
    • Abstract: This article analyzes the position of the child narrator as a witness to war trauma in the publication process of an autobiographical writing in translation and, in particular, the uneven power relations this process entails. While postcolonial discourse has so far been applied to the study of children’s literature by mainly looking at the relationship between adult authors and child readers, this article adds a new perspective by examining the continued inequity between the child author and the adult agents involved in the translation and publication process of a child-authored text. In her seminal work on the “impossibility” of children’s literature, Jacqueline Rose located the reason for the ... Read More

  • Youth, Poetry, and Zines: Rewriting the Streets as Home
    • Abstract: Eighteen-year-old Jae published the opening poem in Another Slice (originally called Slice)—a zine first created in the late-1990s by and for culturally diverse homeless youth aged sixteen to twenty-four in urban Canada. This excerpt is from her longer poem, “Yuppy Muck,” where she critiques the yuppie city dwellers (defined broadly as anyone housed or middle class or above) who walk past and disdainfully judge her home on the street. Jae’s poem is only one example from an under-examined archive of what we call a literature of the streets, written by and for youth—or, as Slice was originally subtitled, “4 BY AND ABOUT STREET KIDS.” In this article, we focus explicitly on the how youth use poetry as a mode for ...

  • Revising Hegemonic Masculinity: Homosexuality, Masculinity, and
           Youth-Authored Harry Potter Fanfiction
    • Abstract: Children’s and young adult (YA) literature is typically viewed as a literature that both constructs and regulates its intended audience because adults create and regulate this literature for youth audiences, policing the material to which youth have access by eliding certain content (see, for example, Rose). However, the spread of the internet and other digital media has allowed youth to create and share their own texts outside of the realm of adult supervision as never before. Pornography is no longer the realm of tattered magazines eagerly passed around the locker room but is now instantaneously accessible, for example, and young fans are able to interact with and revise beloved texts to suit their own desires ...

  • Moominvalley Fossils: Translating the Early Comics of Tove Jansson
    • Abstract: Until their republication in 2006, Tove Jansson’s (1914–2001) Moomin comic strips remained relatively unexplored, compared to the well-known Moomin book series. Targeted at an adult audience, these strips—in which the innocence of the hippo-like Moomins often fell into conflict with the mechanisms of modern society—were published in English in The Evening News in the UK from 1954 to 1968 and fell out of view until Canadian publisher Drawn & Quarterly started reprinting them in hardback form. But Jansson’s work with the cartoon form long predates this, with her first published cartoons appearing in 1929 while she was still in her early teens. And yet, although there is a vast body of scholarly work on Tove ... Read More

  • Writing Opens Many Doors
    • Abstract: The following is a report on my experiences teaching creative writing to ten- to fifteen-year-old students both in their first language, Slovenian, and the first foreign language they study, English. Writing, as one of the four language skills, is an important part of the language learning process for children. Above all, creative writing is rewarding for children. It enables them to learn and create and, as a result, to feel positive about themselves. It confirms and develops their skills and competences. As there are no wrong answers in the process, every draft of a text has some good elements that can be further developed. Teaching through creative writing provides teachers a lot of freedom and room for ... Read More

  • Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership: Raising the Status of Children’s
           Voices in Ireland and Australia
    • Abstract: Children need love because if we didn’t have love we wouldn’t learn how to love. … The Troubles have been part of my family history. My granddad was in the Order of Malta and he was shot at on Bloody Sunday. My dad was hit by a rubber bullet and it was very painful. My mummy and daddy used to hear a lot of gunshots. I’ve never heard gunfire in real life. I don’t think my mum and dad will ever forget about the Troubles but they don’t mention it. When we were living in Africa, there was a lot of fighting all around us. When my mum was born and when she was growing up, there was a lot of fighting. When I was born there was fighting and it still goes on today. We never felt safe. Why should any ... Read More

  • Writing with Children: From Teacher to Writer
    • Abstract: I first came to publishing books with children sixteen years ago. I had ten years’ experience of teaching children with special needs in Sligo, London, and Boston, where I did an M.Ed. in Intercultural Education at Emmanuel College. In Sligo, I worked with children from the Travelling community at primary level as a resource teacher. (Irish Travellers identify themselves as a separate ethnic nomadic group with defined cultural patterns of movement, marriage, and language. Hiberno-English as spoken by Travellers differs from the settled community and includes remnants of the Cant language, which predates Old Irish.) I realized there were no books for children with Travellers in them, and neither ... Read More

  • The Library as Publishing Hub: Children’s Books by Children and for
           Children in the Kids’ Own Book Cubby
    • Abstract: Libraries are repositories of community and personal histories recorded in all forms. Libraries throughout history have had the technology and space, both of which have provided support and inspiration for people of all ages to tell their stories. As you read this (perhaps in a library yourself), people are sitting in libraries and writing down their thoughts, dreams, and memories in the hope that publication will bring them a wider audience. Many published works began their lives on library surfaces and screens. Libraries are more and more actively facilitating this process, as described recently by Henrietta Verma in the Library Journal: At the low-cost end of the spectrum for libraries is providing ...

    • Abstract: It is a great honor and a pleasure for me to present the winners of the 2016 IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award. This Award was founded in 1986 in commemoration of the 20th IBBY Congress in Tokyo, and it is made possible by sponsorship by the Asahi Shimbun Japanese newspaper company. For the last thirty years, the Award has been presented to outstanding activities by groups or institutions around the world that have been judged to be making a lasting contribution to reading promotion programs for children and young people. For the 2016 Award, we received eleven submissions from fourteen IBBY National Sections: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Iran, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Slovenia, Sweden ... Read More

  • Long-Serving IBBY Member Patricia Crampton Dies Aged Ninety
    • Abstract: Patricia Crampton sadly passed away on 1 December 2016 at her home in Calne, Wiltshire in the UK after a lifetime dedicated to translation. She was involved with IBBY in the UK and internationally from the 1960s onwards and is especially associated with the Hans Christian Andersen Awards. Patricia was a lively, engaging person with a marvelous sense of humor who made friends far and wide. Her intellect and enthusiasm for children’s books and especially the importance of translation made her a formidable advocate for the role of translators.
