Reviews

This latest addition to the acclaimed 1001 series is a guide to the best classic and contemporary children's literature.

"A survey of influential children's books... An asset for all those who've caught--or never lost--the bug." Publisher's Weekly "This 960-page, full-color hardcover is an excellent resource for parents, teachers and librarians, but it also includes just about every title I worshiped when I was younger -
and hundreds I still need to read." USAToday.com "This stimulating guide -- inter-national in scope -- includes many books you'll be grateful to discover or revisit and many more that have been all but forgotten." New York Times Book Review "Finally, there is a reference book to end all reference books... This fat 960-page tome contains hundreds of the best chosen by great children's authors and critics... Organized by age and brilliantly illustrated, it also pops in all kinds of marvelous lists -- Silly Books, Great Collections of Fables, Recommended Books about Horses, More Great books about Granddads, Great War Books, Time-travel Tales and so on..."
