Radical Children's Literature: Future Visions and Aesthetic Transformations in Juvenile Fiction

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, May 15, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 248 pages
Radical Children's Literature reappraises the place of children's literature in culture, showing it to be a creative space where writers and illustrators try out new ideas - about books, society, and the possibilities for narrative in an age of instant communication and multi-media. It looks at the stories young people are given about the world and themselves, and how these interact with changing childhoods and new technologies.
