Sticks and Stones: The Troublesome Success of Childrens Literature from Slovenly Peter to Harry Potter by Jack Zipes

Have children ever really had a literature of their own? InSticks and Stones, Jack Zipes explores childrens literature, from the grissly moralism of Slovenly Peter to the hugely successful Harry Potter books, and argues that despite common assumptions about childrens books, our investment in children is paradoxically curtailing their freedom and creativity.Sticks and Stonesis a forthright and engaging book by someone who cares deeply about what and how children read.
