Om boka

Fantasy has become an increasingly popular genre of children's literature
in recent years. "Quests and Kingdoms" provides a basis from which an adult,
unfamiliar with the genre of children's fantasy literature, may explore it.
"Quests" is a historical survey for the interested general reader, which will
be of great practical value to library and education professionals as well.
Though the aim is to give adults concerned with bringing children (or teens)
and books together a familiarity with the children's fantasy genre and its
history, for those who already know and love the classics of children's
fantasy, "Quests" will be an introduction to works and authors they may have
missed. Taking a chronological approach, "Quests" begins with the fairy-tale
collections of d'Aulnoy, Perrault, and the Grimms, and works its way up to the
novels of J.K. Rowling and Garth Nix, covering over three centuries of fantasy
read by children. The lives of 95 authors are looked at and placed in
historical context, while their works are introduced through both synopses and
analysis. "Quests" also includes chapters on Tolkien, retellings of traditional
stories, and "King Arthur" and "Robin Hood".

More than 500 works are
discussed, and the thorough index makes the book a practical reference resource
as well as a history and an introduction to the best in the genre.
