Of all types of literature, children's literature is probably the most varied, best-loved, and most subtly influential. Children's Literature: An Illustrated History traces the history of children's books in Britain, the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand from the very first printed books through to the present day. It takes 'children's literature' to mean books designed for children as well as books of childhood, and so embraces everything from religious tracts to multimedia comics, from the 'classic' to the unashamedly popular

The gilded age and later novels by Mark Twain( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gilded Age (1873) gave its name to an era. The book originated in a dinner-party challenge: Twain and his Hartford neighbor Charles Dudley Warner, complaining about the low quality of the novels their wives were reading, were asked if they could do better. The resulting collaboration is a panorama of an age in which vast fortunes piled up amid thriving corruption, and of the nation's capital, teeming with would-be power brokers. It features the remarkable Colonel Sellers, a visionary convinced that his odd inventions and schemes will bring him fame and riches." "Colonel Sellers returns in The American Claimant (1892), an encore performance that takes off into realms of freewheeling antics. Now the would-be heir to an English title, Sellers concocts a host of extravagant inventions, like a "cursing phonograph" for timid sea captains and a method for "materializing" the dead. As he worked on this farrago of multiple role reversals and madcap schemes, Twain wrote, "I wake up in the night laughing at its ridiculous situations."" "Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894) and Tom Sawyer, Detective (1896) are late, fanciful extensions of the adventures begun in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In the first, Tom and Huck and Jim escape again from civilization, not on a raft but in a balloon which carries them across the Atlantic. In Tom Sawyer, Detective, Twain transposes a seventeenth-century Danish murder case to America, letting his famous pair play Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson." "Twain's haunting final novel, left in manuscript after his death, No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger, is an uncanny psychic adventure set in the gothic gloom of a medieval Austrian village. Unusual among Twain's works for its phantasmagoric trappings, the novel powerfully interrogates the latent powers of the human mind. Originally published in heavily edited form, it appears here in the authoritative text established a half century after Twain's death."--Jacket
