'A response to the dramatic growth of interest in the study of children's literature over recent years. As the first of its kind published in Australia, it breaks new ground in a number of ways. First, it provides a suitable text for students of children's literature. Secondly, it covers a wide area of theory and practice in Australia. Thirdly, it draws together a large amount of information to interest parents, teachers, librarians and scholars in the field who wish to learn more about children's books. Fourthly, it gives teachers practical guidelines for using good literature in the classroom when teaching reading, as well as for sheer enjoyment. The 22 contributors to this volume are all pre-eminent in their particular area of expertise.'
