Mapping this vibrant scholarship, the Second Edition of Keywords for Children’s Literature presents original essays on essential terms and concepts in the field.

A huge wave has crashed through the valley, flooding the Moomins out of their home! With their usual resilience, the Moomins and their friends move into the first house that comes bobbing along. It's strange-looking, like a big cave with curtains hanging on either side. And when the house bumps into dry land and Moomintroll and the Snork Maiden decide to spend the night on shore--then the adventure really begins. Moomintroll and the Snork Maiden get lost, and Moominpappa decides to write a play which they will perform in the house, in the hope that Moomintroll will hear about it and find his way home. "Moominsummer Madness," the fourth in Tove Jansson's classic series of books about Moominvalley, is enchanting and full of exciting adventures and surprises, some of them odd even by Moomin standards!

Nikolajeva (comparative literature, Stockholm U., Sweden), treating all children's literature as an essentially symbolic depiction of a maturation process (rather than dividing children's literature into genres of fantasy versus reality), surveys a wide range of works from different times and across the globe. From a Jungian perspective, she categorizes the works to the degree that they confront the coming of age process. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

100 Faces From Finland

Author: Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seura
Editor: Finnish Literature Society

File Size: 10,82 MB
Format: PDF, Kindle

100 Faces From Finland contains a series of individual biographical studies dedicated to those who, in their own spheres of life, have made important contributions to the development of Finnish society. The articles came into being as part of the National Biography of Finland, which contains 6000 brief biographies edited by the Finnish Historical Society. The collection is not just an introduction to individuals, however, as the closely interwoven articles provide an overall view of Finland's human resources and expertise over the centuries. The book's time span stretches through three different cultural and political ages: The Middle Ages until 1809, when Finland was a part of the Swedish Realm; from 1809 to 1917, when it was a Russian Grand Duchy; and since 1917 when it has been an independent state. The collection contains, in equal proportions, people who are well-known for their contributions to society, and those who are famous in the arts and sciences. Political life is represented by the Presidents of the Republic, and the less exalted ranks of society by church builders and hunters. Cultural figures known to an international public -- from the architect Alvar Aalto to the composer Jean Sibelius or from the painter Helene Schjerfbeck to the glass artist Tapio Wirkkala -- are also presented in the book.
