Brings together 22 scholars to look closely at the complexities of children’s culture. They ask questions about how the gender symbolism of children’s culture is constructed & resisted. What happens when women rewrite (or illustrate) nursery rhymes, adventure stories, & fairy tales told by men? How do the socially scripted plots for boys & girls change through time & across cultures? Have critics been blind to what women write about “masculine” topics? Can animal tales or doll stories displace tired commonplaces about gender, race, & class? An indispensable text for anyone engaged with the cultural & post-feminist analysis of lit., & an extremely valuable book to newcomers to the fields of children’s lit. & cultural studies. Illustrations.
