About the Author:

PETER BRAMWELL lectures for the Open University and the University of Sunderland, UK. Since gaining an MA in Children's Literature from Roehampton University he has continued to research in this area, and has contributed to Modern Children's Literature: An Introduction (edited by Kim Reynolds) and The Oxford Encyclopedia of Children's Literature (edited by Jack Zipes).

Review:

'...It's wide-ranging, but there's a critical intelligence with regard both to the literature and to paganism in its various forms...' - Dr Charles Butler

'Peter Bramwell's final sentence is perhaps the best way to begin this review: 'A creatively critical dialogue between [modern Paganism and children's fiction] is what this book has observed and perhaps, I hope, extended' (190). Pagan Themes in Modern Children's Fiction succeeds in initiating a dialogue well worth extending beyond these pages, both for Pagan Studies and children's-literature scholars.' - Dawn Comer, The Pomegranate: An International Journal of Pagan Studies
