Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'… a vast and valiant undertaking … Victor Watson has assembled an enormous team of contributors, many of them academics from places as far apart as Cambridge itself and the University of Tasmania, whose task is to assess the entire range of writing for children, from Mother Goose onwards … This latest guide to a fascinating branch of literature adds up to a treasure trove of appreciation and information.' Patricial Craig, The Independent

'A detailed Guide to a fascinating but complex world of words and pictures.' Quentin Blake, Children's Laureate

'This Guide opens up to a wide audience the approachability of children's literature as a cultural sharing of one of the delights of childhood.' Margaret Meek

'The Cambridge Guide brings, at long last, to the often neglected genre of children's books, the gravitas of scholarship, but in a form that is both accessible and desirable. I have used it extensively as a reference book,m to find out more about fellow writers and illustrators and editors. But I have also dipped into it, treating it as an anthology almost, and made wonderfully unexpected discoveries. I keep it on my bedside table, alongside 'the Rattle Bag'. Good company! Truly a treasure chest of children's literature, but not to be hidden away.' Michael Morpurgo

'The Guide will quickly become indispensable. What I particularly like is the considered and richly informed writing by people of real stature in their fields. There's an awareness of current issues, including commercial ones, as well as the evaluative and historical pieces.' Philip Pullman

' … the entries are all thoughtful, detailed, and illuminating. many cover the history of their subject from the earliest appearance to modern publications, giving a depth that is often lacking in other reference works [ …] Highly recommended for all libraries.' Library Journal

'The result is a publication which is likely to become (and remain for some time) a standard reference text. Its cost will be more than justified by the regular use which, in many different ways and settings, will be made of it.' Times Educational Supplement

'Fully comprehensive, this is a most welcome dip-in resource which makes engrossing reading. A must for all those involved with children's literature.' Junior Education

'It is gratifying to be able to signal the success of such an ambitious and monumental undertaking of this Cambridge Guide … one must only marvel at the achievement of Victor Watson and the team behind this most important publication.' Magpies

'This isn't just a guide but a real page turner - vivid, funny, devoted and warm. If you take it into your hands you can write of the rest of your working day. It is a truly addictive production.' Books in Ireland

'I have no hesitation in recommending this. It's tremendous value.' Signal

'I can only reinforce my recommendation of this excellent reference guide by endorsing the publisher's view: 'a book to enjoy and relish.' International Schools Magazine

'I can only reinforce my recommendation of this excellent guide by endorsing the publisher's view: 'a book to enjoy and relish'. International Schools Magazine

'A treasure trove of information on all aspects of children's books. In fact it is by no means easy to tear oneself away from it to begin writing a review. As a resource for information on almost every aspect of children's books past and present it is a remarkable compilation. It is unsurpassed.' English Studies

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Cambridge Guide to Children's Books in English is an alphabetised reference work providing a critical and appreciative overview of children's books written in English across the world. It gives due weight to the history of children's books from pre-Norman times to the present - respecting the canon but also recognising current developments in publishing practices and in children's own reading. In addition to the long established traditions of children's writing from Britain and the USA, the Guide covers the increasing range of successful children's books produced in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and India; and the exciting renaissances in children's books taking place in Ireland and South Africa. In acknowledging that a great deal of what children read has little to do with classrooms and not much to do with what is considered 'literary', the Guide contains entries on television, comics, annuals and the growing range of media texts.

An odd and quirky assortment of entries 25 avril 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I found this compendium of review and comment to be highly inconsistent in quality and analysis from entry to entry. Although I was glad to see that Annie Fellows Johnston's Little Colonel series was included, the series is not given its due as a contributing element to literary works for girls at the turn of the 1900s. Aileen Fisher and Kitty Barne also receive less coverage and analysis than they deserve. Ironically, there is a long section under "n" devoted to "neglected works"! This is a higgledy-piggledy catchall section in a book that should devote more attention to many of the writers listed in that entry. A huge amount of ink is devoted to a long and rambling section called "publishers and publishing"; another long segment is called "information books." Obviously no encyclopedia of children's literature can include everyone's favorite author or aspect of the field. This book, however, needs tightening and recasting in the next go-round.

Useful, Engaging, periodically irritating 5 mars 2002
Par Kim Velk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought this book just before Christmas hoping to learn a little about a English illustrator and children's book writer called Gladys Peto, whose work I collect in a small way. She escaped Mr. Watson's detection or didn't make the cut. I next checked on another personal favorite, illustrator Margaret Evans Price. Again, among the missing. I turned to the article on Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House Books", and was put off by the spelenetic tone and politically correct pretensions I found there, e.g.: "These are mostly moral tales for children but they also establish a clear picture of male dominance." The cold hand (heart?) of academe governs this book. (It must be hard to be the children's lit. guy at the Faculty Club where Stephen Hawking and his ilk have lunch...)
That said, I have enjoyed reading this book and learned much that I did not know. My little collecting activities have been better informed and I have made frequent use of the book as a reference tool. It has helped and will help me make informed choices of good books for my two small children, which was the other thing I was hoping for when I laid out my...

This book has a lot of information but not in a very accessible format. It is not easy to read or use.
