Synopsis:

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Foreign Affairs journeys into the world of children's literature in a series of essays that examine classics from diverse eras--including Alcott's Little Women and Baum's Wizard of Oz--to show how these authors used children's literature to transfigure their own struggles and experiences. Original.


Review:

"Alison Lurie's is the best book on the classics of the genre I have ever read..."

John Bayley, New York Review of Books, 03/27/2003

Review:

"[T]hroughout this volume Lurie demonstrates the breadth and sureness of her taste,...Two essays, of a more general or summarizing nature, 'What Fairy Tales Tell Us,' and 'Enchanted Forests and Secret Gardens', both learned and wise, show Lurie at her best."

Christopher Reid, Times Literary Supplement, 09/26/2003
