How Did Long John Silver Lose his Leg?

and Twenty-Six Other Mysteries of Children’s Literature

by Dennis Butts & Peter Hunt

ISBN: 9780718893101

‘Their knowledge is encyclopaedic, this volume being a testament to their learning and achievements. […] throughout the collection Butts and Hunt employ approaches to reading which set the texts within social and historical contexts and thereby bring greater understanding. Their approach ensures that whilst ‘righting’ some misconceptions which might arise through the reading of children’s literature they have only increased the enjoyment for both the scholar and the casual reader. This collection is a must read!’

 Prof. Jean Webb, Director of the International Forum for Research in Children’s Literature, University of Worcester, January 11th, 2014
