Abstract

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.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
