Reviews

The prevalence of Gothic themes in literature for young readers is the impetus for this collection, which fills a void in children's literature criticism. This timely collection presents a variety of perspectives and discusses a variety of texts, and so is a valuable addition to the literature. Recommended. -- P. J. Kurtz, Minot State University, Choice
