Abstract

This chapter discusses the emergence of Children's Literature as a distinct field within English and re-evaluates what was traditionally seen as a marginal area of literary studies. It draws attention to the field's strong themes of multimodality and considers moves towards new, interactive story-making practices which are transforming traditional linear experiences.
