Abstract

As a new generation of readers grows up in the dawn of the 21st century, this chapter explores the forms of literature they are encountering in a range of media, whether their experiences of literature are substantially different from those of older generations and what ‘reading stories’ means in today’s multimedia world. Consideration is given to the literary landscapes of children aged 3 – 11 years in different social settings, both in and out of school, and to the different ways they experience a range of literary texts, focusing on print, interactive and electronic forms of literature, and transformations of literary originals in new media.
