"It is always stimulating to read a book that challenges received wisdomin this case the facile assumption that young people do not enjoy fiction which also provides them with information. Basing her judgment on her own experience and a large-scale informal survey of sf readers, Mendlesohn recognizes a cohort of 'reading children' who welcome the scientific knowledge that they can acquire from books such as those she identifies in her final chapter as demonstrating 'best practice' in areas such as genre values and structure. An impressive feature of this work is the very extensive range of books discussed, making it an essential text for anyone researching this area. The treatment of gender is particularly interesting, and there is also an appendix dealing with picturebooks. The book is also very readable, combining critical flair with individual and often original perceptions"Pat Pinsent, Senior Research Fellow, National Centre for Research in Children's Literature, Roehampton University -- Pat Pinsent, Senior Research Fellow "Pat Pinsent, Senior Research Fellow"
