This book provides an illuminating guide to literature that creates alternative worlds for young readers. Focusing on the work of Ursula Le Guin, Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman, the book considers both the genre of 'alternative worlds' and the distinctiveness of these authors' texts, including Philip Pullman's The Amber Sypglass. Peter Hunt is Pofessor of English at Cardiff University. Millicent Lenz is Associate Professor at the State University of New York at Albany.

"This is an invigorating look at some of today's most prominent fantasists, and fantasy lovers as well as those seeking a handle on the genre will appreciate this approach. Each chapter in this volume concludes with extensive notes and suggestions for further reading; the LeGuin and Pullman chapters include biographies of the authors." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, 2002
