Mallan, Kerry M. (2002) Fatal attractions: Death, femininity, and children’s literature. In Bull, Geoff & Anstey, Michele (Eds.) Crossing the Boundaries. Pearson Education Australia, Frenchs Forest, N.S.W., pp. 175-190.
Book Description: Crossing the Boundaries is a ground breaking new text for Children's Literature courses that draws on the disciplines of Arts and Education. As reflected in the title, Crossing the Boundaries analyses children's literature from a truly interdisciplinary perspective, with academics, authors and illustrators contributing to the book.
In this edited collection, a focus on Australian children's literature is balanced with studies and examples from international children's literature. The selection of contributors from US, Canada UK, South Africa and New Zealand helps provides the global coverage.
A genre-based and thematic approach is utilised throughout the book.
