Full Description : "This volume visits death in children’s literature from around the world, making a substantial contribution to the dialogue between the expanding fields of Childhood Studies, Children’s Literature, and Death Studies. Considering both textual and pictorial representations of death, contributors focus on the topic of death in children’s literature as a physical reality, a philosophical concept, a psychologically challenging adjustment, and/or a social construct. Essays covering literature from the US, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Canada, the UK, Sweden, Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, the Soviet Union, India, and Iran display a diverse range of theoretical and cultural perspectives. Carefully organized sections interrogate how classic texts have been adapted for the twenty-first century, how death has been politicized, ritualized, or metaphorized, and visual strategies for representing death, and how death has been represented within the context of play. Asking how different cultures present the concept of death to children, this volume is the first to bring together a global range of perspective on death in children’s literature and will be a valuable contribution to an array of disciplines.

Full Description : "There Was, There Wasn't acts as a matryoshka, images and characters nesting inside each other, drifting in and out of linear order, subverting it into cyclical time. Bodies don't remain dead and the dead are in many ways more alive than the living. At the core of the narratives is a discussion of Charles Bernheim's theories of the decomposing venus as well as Gilles de Luz's discussions of dream theory, with little girls being the ideal candidates for moving in and out of the surrealist dream-state in search of truth and, in the case of many of the poems, lost memory. Character identity is even subverted and contorted as characters exchange places with one and other, acting multiple roles. This is particularly true of "The Art of Almost Raising the Dead" wherein Koschei the Deathless picks up the role of Lazarus in the aftermath of his resurrection. This loose interpretation and layering of Russian folklore characters allows for greater fluidity of time and space, as well as enableing interpretations and questions to be posed that otherwise might not be able to be expressed fully. This duality is also apparent in Baba Yaga who appears both trapped in a mirror and as a Mother Nature figure in separate poems. The overall structure of the collection itself acts in a similar matryoshka setting as each title comes from the place where Koschei's death is concealed, though leading not to death but a way back to a pseudo life, questioning resurrection and the ressurected. The overall goal of the collecting being to raise the question of whether or not the resurrected ever really return, and if they do can they ever be the same again, could they ever die?

Full Description : "Elena Rudina lives in the impoverished Russian countryside. Her father has been dead for years. One of her brothers has been conscripted into the Tsar's army, the other taken as a servant in the house of the local landowner. Her mother is dying, slowly, in their tiny cabin. And there is no food. But then a train arrives in the village, a train carrying untold wealth, a cornucopia of food, and a noble family destined to visit the Tsar in Saint Petersburg - a family that includes Ekaterina, a girl of Elena's age. When the two girls' lives collide, an adventure is set in motion, an escapade that includes mistaken identity, a monk locked in a tower, a prince travelling incognito, and - in a starring role only Gregory Maguire could have conjured - Baba Yaga, witch of Russian folklore, in her ambulatory house perched on chicken legs.
