Radical Childrens Literature: Future Visions and Aesthetic Transformations in Juvenile Fiction


Winner of the 2007 Book Award by the Children's Literature Association
"Covering a huge geographical and historical range, Reynolds examines both traditional and less traditional literary forms (visual media, computer games, fan fiction etc), effortlessly combining insightful close readings with an enviable theoretical acumen. This book is destined to become a classic in the field." --David Rudd, University of Bolton, UK

"[A] groundbreaking study...The wide range of texts discussed and the new insights offered into the interplay of children's literature with childhood and youth culture will make this book an indispensable study for children's literature scholars." --Claudia Sffner, Bookbird, A Journal of International Children's Literature
