About this title

Synopsis:

It often seems that the most gifted authors of books for children are not like other writers: instead, in some essential way, they are children themselves. E. Nesbit devoted weeks to building a toy town out of kitchenware. James Barrie spent his holidays playing pirates and Indians with the four Davies boys. Laurent deBrunhoff, who continued his father's Babar series, is still climbing trees at the age of 70. Beatrix Potter preferred the company of animals and pets to that of eligible young dancing partners at balls. In these fascinating studies, Alison Lurie's subjects range from what fairy tales teach us, to children's games and poetry by and for children, from book illustrators to enchanted forests and secret gardens in children's literature.

About the Author:

Alison Lurie's books for children include Clever Gretchen and Other Forgotten Folktales and The Heavenly Zoo. She is the author of a number of much admired adult novels, including The War Between the Tates and Last Resort. Alison Lurie is a winner of the Prix Femina Etranger for The Truth About Lorin Jones and the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for Foreign Affairs. She divides her time between the USA and London.
