  • “I Am a Writer on the Nomadic Journey”: Interview with
           Dashondog Jamba
    • Abstract: I was raised in a felt ger (tent) of a nomadic family. We had always been on the move. Every new place we moved to was so incredible and beautiful that I experienced everything including grass, water, and wind as new. So as the nomadic boy, I have been and am still moving from one style to a new style of writing by seeking a new melody and also a deeper meaning of words throughout my entire life as a children’s writer. I wrote my first poem on snow. I was around four years old. I did not have any paper and I had not yet learned the alphabet. So I drew my thoughts on the snow. What did I draw' I drew a horse on which I had just learned to ride. Thinking back on that time now, it was like an ancient ... Read More

  • Female Empowerment and Undocumented Border Crossing in Bettina
           Restrepo’s Illegal
    • Abstract: Confronting the realities of undocumented immigration, movement, and diaspora in children’s and young adult (YA) literature means rethinking the way childhood agency is constructed for an audience that expects both sanitized portraits of childhood and critical representations of undocumented immigrants. The images most Americans have access to concerning undocumented immigration are often skewed, depicting harsh realities along the border, like narcotráfico and violence; the reliance on such graphic, jarring images constructs negative attitudes toward undocumented immigration.1 Furthermore, the polemical rhetoric surrounding undocumented immigration in the United States disproportionately affects ...

  • Peter Rabbit in the Garden of Terror: Patronizing the Reader in
           Picturebook Translation
    • Abstract: Beatrix Potter originally wrote The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1893 for Noel, the son of her former governess. The story was published as a private edition in 1901 and by Frederick Warne the following year (Whalley and Chester 164). The book tells the tale of a young rabbit who ventures into a farmer’s garden against his mother’s orders. He helps himself to the delights of the garden, almost gets caught, but then manages to return home unharmed. For decades, the story was interpreted as a cautionary tale, urging its child readers to behave well. While the interpretation might seem plausible from the point of view of adults reading the story, it is considerably less convincing when considered from the ... Read More

  • Editorial
    • Abstract: maybe i am just an odd editor, but I like to read errata lists. I take innocent pleasure in perusing lists of corrections and emendations. Some publications, like The New York Review of Books, can turn the errata list into a genre in itself—and make it a learning experience. I also find that the corrections found in local newspapers often provide quaint and interesting details of relevance to the local community. Moreover, in my experience, a forbidding academic tome can suddenly appear friendly and inviting as soon as it (or rather its author) admits that a mistake has been made, say, on page 432, second line. Note that it is not the fault in itself that is commendable in any of these cases but rather the ... Read More

  • Critical Fictions of Transnationalism in Latinx Children’s
           Literature
    • Abstract: ”Transnational literature transformed the nature of the locations we study, and focused our attention on forms of cultural production that take place in the liminal spaces between real and imagined borders.” Spend time talking to any Latinx child today from the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, or any other Latin American country and they can talk about family members or friends who live in another country, who have lived in another country and returned, or who have considered the possibility of leaving. Their complex social networks transcend national borders, cultures, and languages. Sadly, however, the children’s books used in schools rarely reflect the complex transnational identities of children ... Read More

  • “I’ve Got a Story You Haven’t Heard”: Conversation about the Art
           and Craft of Nonfiction with Candace Fleming
    • Abstract: Candace Fleming Author Candace Fleming’s books for young readers include novels and picture books, but she is best known for her nonfiction young adult books. These include The Lincolns: A Scrapbook Look at Abraham and Mary (2008), which won the 2009 ALA Notable Books, and The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of Imperial Russia (2014), which won numerous honors and awards, including the NCTE Orbis Pictus Award and the Cybils Award in Nonfiction for Young Adults. Her works are characterized not just by their historic accuracy but also by the vivid detail and narrative Fleming skillfully weaves into her texts. From behind the scenes of the Civil War to the contrasting worlds of opulence and ... Read More

  • The Nordic House in Reykjavík, Iceland: A House with a Big Heart for
           Children and Literature
    • Abstract: Photo: Mats Wibe Lund Surrounded by sea on three sides and guarded by the majestic mountain range Esja, the city of Reykjavík is a capital in a rather non-metropolitan way. Small in scale and with a pond frequented by Arctic birds for a central square, the city gets its capital allure from the international vibe of its numerous events and the variety of cultural festivals it hosts. One of the venues taking a leading role in the city’s richness of activities is the Nordic House, situated in the nature reserve across the road from the city center. The same modest size as Reykjavík, the house is as vibrant, varied, and international as the city itself. The Nordic House, built in ... Read More

  • Perception and Reception of Nonfiction for Children and Youth in Slovenia
    • Abstract: In Slovenia, the publishing of high-quality fiction for children and youth has traditionally been considered crucial for national culture. In contrast, nonfiction for children and youth has not been admitted the same importance and has been, after introduction of capitalist economy, completely subjected to the open market. Publishers have avoided original nonfiction as it is expensive to produce and considered difficult to sell (readers have moved to other media, such as educational television programs and the internet). With little public interest in nonfiction for children and youth, its unfortunate state would have gone unnoticed if not for systematic expert assessment of children and youth literature. ...

  • Interview with Nizar Ali Badr
    • Abstract: Nizar Ali Badr works on a rocky beach near his home in Lattakia, Syria. He bends down to gather smooth pebbles to use in his art. He says “I am a Syrian sculptor from Ugarit; my ancestors left a signature in my genes to create and share my work with honesty and modesty.” Nizar’s art is striking and unusual. Arranging rocks on the ground or on a rectangle of plywood, he creates images that touch the heart. When I first spotted his art on Facebook, I was struck by the fact that the image showed deep emotion, yet it was simply made of rocks. How did he do that' Intrigued, I looked at his Facebook page and found many more images. As the author of over thirty books for children, I felt ... Read More

  • Censuras y Literatura Infantil y Juvenil en el siglo XX ed. by Pedro C.
           Cerrillo, María Victoria Sotomayor (review)
    • Abstract: Censorship is a well-studied topic, but is usually neglected inliterature for children and young adults. All the more welcome is a research project conducted by five Spanish and four Latin American universities from 2014 to 2016, which analyses by the example of authoritarian regimes in Spain and Latin America in the 20th century how censorship works in children’s literature. The results of this project are now made available in this volume, edited by Pedro C. Cerrillo and María Victoria Sotomayor. The first section, taking up more than half, studies the Franco regime in Spain (1939–1976). The archival material is rich and easily accessible, allowing for a good understanding of the structures ... Read More

  • Children’s Literature and the Avant-Garde ed. by Elina Druker, Bettina
           Kümmerling-Meibauer (review)
    • Abstract: These conference proceedings look at the artistic avant-garde and its impact on the development of children’s literature. Divided into three thematically and chronologically ordered sections, the authors explore the activities of avant-garde artists in the field of children’s literature, the relevance of avant-garde views of art and of the world for children’s literature, as well as children’s literature about avant-garde art. Given the broad transnational influence of avant-garde movements, which the contributions convincingly document, it may seem surprising that this topic has been little studied so far. Most contributions focus on the visual influences, while only a few address textual and literary ... Read More

  • Three Times in Wonderland
    • Abstract: Nothing proves more the challenging complexity of an artwork than a choir of synchronic critical voices which propose in parallel with each other inventive, new interpretations of a widely-read canonized classic some hundred and fifty years after its original publication. My review essay outlines a transnational, comparative interface of three recent academic studies published between 2013 and 2015, all targeting creative rereadings of Lewis Carroll’s Victorian nonsense fairy-tale fantasies about Alice’s adventures in Wonderland and beyond the Looking Glass. The scholars weighing in the postmillennial discussion of this irresistibly curious textual corpus are all specialists of nineteenth-century and ... Read More

  • Den Nordiske Børnebog ed. by Anette Øster (review)
    • Abstract: Just do your own thing – that used to be the way it worked. But recent years have seen more co-operation on the Nordic children’s literature scene. One reason for this development may be the “Nordisk Råds Pris for barneog ungdomslitteratur“, founded by the Nordic Council in 2013: A Nordic Jury selects a winner from the North, all languages, countries, and regions being equally eligible. The first winners came from Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Den nordiske børnebog is a book compiled in conjunction with the prize and features Nordic writers, artists, scholars, and journalists. It is inspired by a comic book by Danish illustrator Rasmus Bregnhøi, in which his alter ego wants to write a ... Read More

  • Er Tong Yu Zhan Zheng: Guo Zu, Jiao Yu Ji Da Zhong Wen Hua [Children and
           War: National Education and Mass Culture] by Xu Lanjun (review)
    • Abstract: The childhood concept discovered by modern Chinese Literature at the beginning of the twentieth century and its romantic idealization became obsolete during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945). Childhood had to be reinvented. The author of this study takes on this topic neglected by Chinese literary studies by looking at discourses about childhood as a cultural construct and by analyzing contemporary Chinese literature for children, including primers and textbooks, plays, magazines, games of war, literary works by children and with child-protagonists, comics, and films. By situating the concept of childhood in China within the discourses of nation building, war propaganda, education, and mass ... Read More

  • Zolotykh Stupenek Riad: Kniga o Detstve I Knigi Detstva by Evgeniia
           Putilova (review)
    • Abstract: The latest book authored by Evgeniia Oskarovna Putilova, who is widely recognized as a doyen of Russian children’s literature, history, and criticism, is an important achievement even for this well-known scholar. In her study of her favorite subject, Russian children’s literature, Putilova seamlessly combines her personal story with the thoroughly researched history of children’s literature of different periods, from the very beginnings of this literature’s formation to the major contributions during the Soviet era. In contemporary criticism of Russian children’s literature, it has become almost obligatory to stress the rift between the pre-revolutionary period and the radical change to the ... Read More

  • Translating and Transmediating Children’s Literatures and Cultures
    • Abstract: Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature seeks contributions for a special issue on the translation and transmediation of children’s literatures and cultures. Mediation – whether in the form of adaptation, translation or remediation – allows for a reevaluation of a variety of notions ranging from authenticity, textuality, authorship, audience agency, age appropriateness, creativity, and storytelling. Henry Jenkins’ definition of “transmedia storytelling,” in particular, encapsulates the worldbuilding strategies of most of today’s popular children’s literary/cultural products. The lure of Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, or the Moomins is considerably enhanced by the plethora of ... Read More

  • Alice in Transmedia Wonderland: Curiouser and Curiouser New Forms of a
           Children’s Classic by Anna Kérchy (review)
    • Abstract: In Alice in Transmedia Wonderland: Curiouser and Curiouser New Forms of a Children’s Classic, author Anna Kérchy analyzes a wide range of Alice adaptations across many forms of media. These creative transmedia interpretations give audiences new ways to experience the story and include books, movies, iPad apps, ballets, puppet shows, fan art, and even Tom Waits’s 2002 Alice album. The book focuses primarily on adaptations created in the late twentieth or early twenty-first centuries. The analyses consider Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There together as one “intertextual, dialogic unit” (1). In the introduction, Kérchy writes that one goal in ... Read More

  • East meets West: Literature for children and youth in Greece, Turkey, and
           Cyprus
    • Abstract: Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature seeks contributions for a special issue on literature for children and youth in Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus. The “East meets West” theme of this special issue is reflected in all aspects of life in Turkey, Cyprus, and Greece: from architecture, to politics, pop culture, food, art, music, education, and of course literature. The flows of people, cultures, religions, and languages through this geographical triangle, and their interactions within it, have historically produced both intense cultural richness and tensions. And the current effects of globalization make this richness and tension even more intense. For Arjun Appadurai, the central ... Read More
