What determines the nature and style of the literature and pictures produced for children? And how do children respond? "Art, Narrative and Childhood" reviews current conceptions of visual texts and explores what will be understood as visual literacy in the future.Drawn from a distinguished international conference in Cambridge in 2000, the contributions range from Aboriginal visual narratives to European artists sketchbooks to children 's classics such as "Alice in Wonderland," new classics and media texts. The enduring appeal of humor is discussed, as manifest in comics, poetry and popular fiction such as the Dr. Seuss books. Children 's voices are also here, offering sophisticated views of pictorial texts and revealing new possibilities about what reading might come to mean.This authoritative and fascinating book will interest the creators, producers and consumers of children 's literature and those who study it worldwide.
