Bibliography

The bibliography has been selected to provide the reader of children's literature with a sound background to the field, and to the selected texts in this book. Although the work in the field is growing, there is still a very uneven distribution of attention given to authors, so some areas may seem particularly well provided for, whilst in others the criticism is sparse.

The selection of texts also offers a springboard into other areas of reading. Works on literary theory and literary movements have been included to enable the reader to develop a knowledge of children's literature within the context of general literary criticism. Significant journals and websites are also listed.
