Living or dead, present or absent, sadly dysfunctional or merrily adequate, the figure of the mother bears enormous freight across a child's emotional and intellectual life. Given the vital role literary mothers play in books for young readers, it is remarkable how little scholarly attention has been paid to the representation of mothers outside of fairy tales and beyond studies of gender stereotypes. This collection of thirteen essays begins to fill a critical gap by bringing together a range of theoretical perspectives by a rich mix of senior scholars and new voices.

Following an introduction in which the coeditors describe key trends in interdisciplinary scholarship, the book's first section focuses on the pedagogical roots of maternal influence in early children's literature. The next section explores the shifting cultural perspectives and subjectivities of the twentieth century. The third section examines the interplay of fantasy, reality, and the ethical dimensions of literary mothers. The collection ends with readings of postfeminist motherhood, from contemporary realism to dystopian fantasy.

The range of critical approaches in this volume will provide multiple inroads for scholars to investigate richer readings of mothers in children's and young adult literature.

About the Author:

Lisa Rowe Fraustino, Ashford, Connecticut, is professor and chair of the Department of English at Eastern Connecticut State University. She has edited three collections of short fiction for young adults and authored several books for young readers, including the 2010 Milkweed Prize winner, The Hole in the Wall.

Review:

"Mothers in Children's and Young Adult Literature is an exciting--even brilliant--collection of diverse criticism on a surprisingly under-studied topic. The thirteen astute essays chosen by Lisa Rowe Fraustino and Karen Coats use a wide array of theoretical approaches to investigate topics that range from innovation in an eighteenth century book for toddlers to animal mothering in picture books to the postfeminism of recent young adult novels."

--Beverly Lyon Clark, author of Kiddie Lit: The Cultural Construction of Children's Literature in America
