How Did Long John Silver Lose his Leg?

And Twenty-Six Other Mysteries of Children’s Literature

by Dennis Butts and Peter Hunt
ISBN: 9780718893101

“…Hunt and Butts are not just throwing us tit-bits of trivia with this set of studies; they are leading to some key, and very modern, issues about the place (and importance) of children’s literature in our broader society… This is a fascinating book, whether simply as something to dip into for some thoughts about a favorite story, or as a broader consideration of where children’s literature has been and could be going. Butts and Hunt write clearly, thoughtfully and with a subtle undertone of challenge.”
