Review:

"[Morris] offers a series of pleasant, readable accounts of his encounters with such classics as Black Beauty, The Secret Garden, Jumanji and Peter Pan. Grounding his analyses in trips to the video store and reading aloud to his son, Morris makes the question of whether Dr. Seuss's 'oobleck' is really Lacan's objet petit a lot less scary than it sounds." -- Publisher's Weekly "Informed and entertaining." -- Lucy Rollin, South Carolina Review ADVANCE PRAISE "In a book as accessible as the literature and film he explores, Tim Morris journeys through secret gardens of high and low culture for kids. His witty, sensible blend of critical scholarship and personal observation gives us a fresh view of selected children's 'classics'--those narrative survivors that grownups sometimes call treasure and sometimes call trash." -- Betsy Hearne, author of Choosing Books for Children and Seven Brave Women
