This bibliography examines literature in English for young people concerning the Indian subcontinent and associated areas, including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It presents the perspectives of authors native to the region as well as non-native authors, and reflects the rich folklore and traditional culture of the subcontinent, its checkered history, and modern challenges. An introductory essay traces the development of children's literature in the region since 1947 and reviews major themes and trends in western children's literature about the subcontinent. The many entries are organized into chapters by country, which are then subdivided by genre. Further access is afforded by indexes of authors, illustrators, titles, and subjects. Annotations provide plot summary, thematic analysis, and literary evaluation and also assess sensitivity to multicultural and international concerns.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Frankfurt (Main) (IEAS), course: Hauptseminar HS Book Bites - From Alice in Wonderland to Harry Potter, 24 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction This paper presents the fields of Children’s and Young Adult Literature , Fantasy Literature and both fields in context. It will firstly discuss different approaches to these fields and specify them with a description of their historical developments – especially in Great Britain, the US and Germany. The focus will lie on a specific literary piece of work – the “Harry Potter” series, containing 7 volumes, written by Joanne K. Rowling, and firstly published originally in England in 1997. This series shall be applied to the theoretical background of fantastic ChL and YAL, so that motifs, figures, narrating techniques, and intentions are considered. The paper will conclude with a justification about what “Harry Potter” really is in a literary sense: A work of fantastic ChL and YAL. 2. What are „Children’s Literature“ and „Young Adult Literature“? 2.1 Definitions Both terms “Children’s Literature” and “Young Adult Literature” are ambiguous and thus not very easy to define. For instance, one may ask, whether ChL is written by children, read by children, written about children, written about what interests children, or written for children. One might generally answer that the notion of “Children’s Literature” includes a bit of everything (except the first aspect because children usually do not write literature). Hunt (1996: 17) also refers to these controversies when attempting to define the term. Firstly, he puts it in rather general words: “it is a category of books the existence of which absolutely depends on supposed relationships with a particular reading audience: children.” This statement defines the target group of ChL what means that Hunt sees it as literature which is read by children. However, this definition does not clarify the notion regarding the characteristics of its field. Many critiques say that the term includes “books which are good for children and most particularly good in terms of emotional and moral values” (Hunt, 1996: 17). But what are emotionally and morally good values, and who decides what they are? This leads to the question, whether ChL is specifically written for children. In this case, authors of such literature decide what is good as well as the parents or teachers who decide to let children read it.

As multicultural education is becoming integral to the core curriculum, teachers often implement this aspect into their courses through literature. However, standards and criteria to teach and promote active discussion about this literature are sparse. Cultural Journeys provides these guidelines through the age-appropriate fiction and non-fiction works embedded in the book. With the example unit plans and extensive annotated bibliography, this book is a valuable resource that pre-service and in-service teachers will utilize throughout their careers.

This collection of essays explores a wealth of topics in children’s and young adult literature and culture. Contributions about picture-books include analyses of variants of the folktale “The Little Red Hen” and bullying. Race and gender are explored in essays about picture-books featuring children as consumable objects, about books focused on African American female athletes, and about young adult dystopian fiction. Gender itself is further explored in articles about Monster High, Joyce Carol Oates’s Beasts, and The Hunger Games and Divergent. Essays about fantasy literature include an exploration of environmentalism in Rick Riordan’s The Heroes of Olympus, a discussion of Severus Snape as a Judas figure, an explication of Chapter 5 of The Hobbit, and an analysis of ghosts and nationalism in Eva Ibbotson’s The Haunting of Granite Falls. An essay about Horrible Histories explores television, genre, and the way history is coded. Other contributions explore how teaching literature to reluctant readers can be effective through multimodal texts and how Harry Potter has played a role in the popularity of young adult literature for adult readers.
