About this title


In eleven essays, the award-winning children's author explores the transforming power of fiction for children, focusing on the power of place and of private vision in classic and contemporary works.

From Booklist:

The worthy companion to Cameron's Green and Burning Tree comprises 11 essays written over 24 years. Four of the writings are new; the others, the author notes, have been edited or rewritten to some extent for this volume. The essays are grouped under the headings "On Writing," "On Fantasy," "Is It Good, Will It Last?" and "The Unconscious." Thoughtful and probing, Cameron's critiques bring a broad range of reading and a rigorous intellect to bear on children's books from Peter Pan to Tehanu. Best of all, Cameron offers insights with the added dimension of her perspective as a writer of children's books. She understands the creative process as well as its results. A good addition to collections of critical materials on children's books. Carolyn Phelan
