Table of contents
Here is a monumental and momentous book. It puts children’s literature on both the comparative literature and the translation studies agenda in ways that practitioners of either discipline will find hard to ignore. Its range and thoroughness are awesome. It combines theoretical and technical discussions with an extended case study, accumulating 1,115 solid footnotes as it goes along and sporting twenty-odd pages of primary and fifty pages of secondary bibliography before we reach the very comprehensive index, another forty pages.
