Summary
This book concentrates on particular authors who are typical of their time, as well as on some of the prevailing themes. Enid Blyton, for example, is often vilified, yet children continue to read her - this book tries to explain why. The idea behind the book has been to select material which genuinely appeals to children. In doing so, the author explores popular writers and themes, and explains what it is in them that appeals to children, and the possible effects on attitudes. Children's Literature and its Effects is a study of popular children's literature, which will be of use to teachers and parents alike in understanding children's responses to books
