Concurrent with increasing scholarly attention towards children?s literature, Canons of Children?s Literature, (Vol. II) explores an emerging body of literature that has thus far garnered little serious critical attention. The book critically examines how children?s writers have positioned children as powerful participants in the project of enabling positive social transformation and argues that those children?s texts are crucially implicated in shaping the values of their readers. The authors explore the fashions in which children?s texts respond to social change and global politics, giving shape to children?s perceived anxieties and desires. Deliberately concise, the book offers succinct yet beautifully written discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children?s books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children?s literature, the text showcases the growing importance of young adult literature and has paid careful attention to the diversity in children?s literature which will equip both the scholars and students of English literature with dynamic new responses on this ?brave new literature.?
