Edited by Morag Styles and written by an international team of acknowledged experts, this series provides jargon-free critical discussion and a comprehensive guide to literary and popular texts for children. Each book introduces the reader to a major genre of children's literature, covering the key authors, major works and the contexts in which those texts are published, read and studied.

Children at War is an authoritative guide to literature for young readers concerning war in the twentieth century - especially the two world wars. The authors discuss literature of all kinds - novels, autobiographies, comics, story-papers and picture-books. In the process they provide the definitive study of the genre.
