Oxford Companion to Children’s Literature


The original companion was published in 1983, it has now been revised and updated by Daniel Hahn.

This easy A-Z is a great place to start if you want to find out anything about children’s literature.  It’s 3,500 entries cover every genre and includes information on some well known characters, as well as over 900 new entries bringing a new generation of writers and illustrators to the fore.

I couldn’t put it down! I searched for my favourite authors/books to check the write up then I began looking for the new entries. Of course there will be some omissions but it is a great starting point highlighting the ever rising significance of children’s literature. A super addition to our school library!
