'a learned and totally addictive guide’The Times

Over 3,600 entries

The last thirty years have witnessed one of the most fertile periods in the history of children’s books—the flowering of imaginative writing and illustration, the Harry Potter phenomenon, the rise of young adult and crossover fiction, and books that tackle extraordinarily difficult subjects. The Companion provides an indispensable and fascinating reference guide to the world of children’s literature. It covers every genre from fairy tales to chapbooks; school stories to science fiction; comics to children’s hymns.

This is the first place to look for information about the authors, illustrators, printers, publishers, educationalists, and others who have influenced the development of children’s literature, as well as the stories and characters at its centre. Written both to entertain and to instruct, it is a reference work that no one interested in the world of children’s books should be without.
