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 suggests either that the sacrifice of Bobbie’s character to the dramatic moment is justified – and/or that the emotional dynamics of the best seller mean that we willingly suspend our disbelief. Nesbit on one side, and her readers on the other, collude in the illusion of a neat and satisfying world. Well, of course, The answer to these suggestions is ‘yes’ and ‘yes'”
