About the Author

Kenneth B. Kidd is associate professor of English and associate director of the Center for Children's Literature and Culture at the University of Florida. He is the author of Making American Boys: Boyology and the Feral Tale (Minnesota, 2004).


"This canny and original study is far more searching, wide-ranging, and fun than its modest title suggests. Kenneth B. Kidd not only analyzes but somehow evokes for us the way the child and stories told about her drift through our dreams, literature, and culture, giving form to our finest aspirations and darkest nightmares. An essential, generous, deeply-informed book." -James Kincaid, University of Southern California
