Description

This two-volume critical history of French children's literature from 1600 to the present helps bring awareness of the range, quality, and importance of French children's literature to a wider audience. The works of a number of French writers, notably La Fontaine, Charles Perrault, Jules Verne, and Saint-Exupery were, and continue to be, widely translated and adapted, and have influenced the development of the genre in other countries.
