Abstract

Discourses of global warming and ecological disaster dominate our contemporary world. This important and timely collection, bringing together papers from the 2009 British IBBY/NCRCL MA conference Deep into Nature: Ecology, Environment and Children's Literature, explores the relationship between texts for children, and nature and the natural world. Featuring articles by a diversity of contributors, from leading authors to eminent academics, it demonstrates the breadth of ways in which today's ecological and environmental concerns are being confronted and interrogated by children's writers, educators and scholars.
