"The critical analysis provides teachers and librarians with a candid, critical review of each writers' works and highlights what effect the writings have had on children's literature. Highly recommended." - Choice
"With plenty of information given on over 50 authors, this should prove to be a valuable resource for acquisition and reference librarians as well as teachers working with children's literature. With the current emphasis on multicultural literature, it is especially pertinent. It serves the useful purpose of making all of us more aware of the excellent literature out there about a variety of groups little taught in our schools. Highly recommended for all libraries." - ^B^XReference Book Review^R

For each author, she provides several pages of biography, followed by a synopsis of the author's major works and themes. Realistically, for most of the authors, this will be the longest biography they will get.
Depending on how well read you are, you may recognise some of the names. Perhaps the best known to a general audience is Isaac Bashevis Singer. Who, as his biography indicates, had the good fortune to leave Warsaw for the United States in the 1930s; avoiding the Holocaust.
