Reading Series Fiction: From Arthur Ransome to Gene Kemp
Routledge, 2002/01/04 - 240 ページ
This book investigates the 'series' in children's literature. The works of several well-known children's authors - UK and the US, traditional and contemporary - are analyzed, and using these examples, the book explores the special nature and appeal of series writing for children. As well as providing an historical overview of the series, the author raises important questions about the nature of literary criticism applied to children's literature.
