Several landmark films are covered here in lively examinations of the art of successful cinematic adaptation, covering children's literature from the Victorian age to the present - from Tom Brown's Schooldays to A Hero Ain't Nothing but a Sandwich [...] This is the first book to devote itself exclusively to film adaptations of children's classics. All the writers are equally at home in children's fiction and film studies. Their essays, with one exception, were especially prepared for this volume. All together, a rewarding look at old and new favourites in literature and the movies, and at the elements that have made them lastingly successful." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Filmography: p. 253-273; Bibliography: p. 280-290 ISBN: 0804428409 : $14.95; 0804468834 (pbk.) : $6.95 LON: 83014816; 2808775 More info
