Wonderful article about children's literature in The New Yorker: The Lion and the Mouse The battle that reshaped children’s literature.
And a short essay in The New York Times: A Few of Life’s Nuggets, and a Children’s Book Is Formed.
Heard about the first via a listserv; then both from Fuse.
It's funny that these came out just as I posted about how there isn't enough coverage of children's lit in mainstream press. I'm happy to get that great New Yorker piece, but wouldn't it be great if there was more, more, more?
My birthday is this month; so I think I'll be treating myself to this. (Link fixed!)
