This book is more theoretical, clear, and rich than its title would suggest. It is artfully written and respectful of ALL children in ways that few researchers/writers are able to be. Even graduate students in literary theory would learn new concepts from this book because Sipe is working from interdisciplinary frames and edging outside the lines of narrow, disciplinary thought.

I use it in my doctoral course on children's/YA literature as a model of how to conduct scientific inquiry.
