I realized the other day that I have spent 46 years reading children's fantasy but have never thought about it in a critical or analytical way. I also wondered how much I had missed. This book is a good start on both those fronts. The number of fantasy titles mentioned is overwhelming, but I learned a lot and discovered that I have a lot of fantasy reading to do. I also appreciated their extensive list of additional scholarly sources.
