Although published in French in 1933 and in the US in 1943, Hazard's sprightly text is passionate, compelling and thoughtfully plotted out as he explores the world of children's literature, not from the typical English perspective but from a truly European point of view and places children's literature as part of literature as a whole with wonderful acumen and depth - a lovely book indeed! Very Northrop Frye!
