Reviews

“This book is both well designed and well executed. It has a remarkable wealth of information that will be useful for scholars of international issues in children’s literature, as well as those who focus on studies in American literature for youth. This volume is a must-have for graduate students because it will help them to form an understanding of the complexity of internationalism and provide them with historical context as well as a thorough investigation of this subject matter.” (Marina Balina, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly, Vol. 41 (1), Spring, 2016)
