Wild Things! Acts of Mischief in Children’s Literature
authors: Betsy Bird; Julie Danielson; Peter D. Sieruta
Secret lives, scandalous turns, and some very funny surprises — these essays by leading kidlit bloggers take us behind the scenes of many much-loved children’s books. Told in lively and affectionate prose, this treasure trove of information for a student, librarian, parent, or anyone wondering about the post–Harry Potter children’s book biz brings contemporary illumination to the warm-and-fuzzy bunny world we think we know.
“Three popular kidlit bloggers take readers on a wild ride through children’s literature that is as entertaining as it is educational. . . . Not to be missed.” — School Library Journal (starred review)
