"This is a book that wears its learning lightly but offers much in the way of cultural insight and some serious reflections on the condition and future of the children's book in a digital age. "

Book description
Perhaps it is just something that comes with age, or perhaps with reading the same stories over and over and over again to younger ears, but one starts to notice little things that grow to bother you. This is a book for anyone who has questioned the problem of time in 'Tom's Midnight Garden', the physics involved in stopping the train in 'The Railway Children', or just how old Great Aunt Maria Turner in 'Swallows and Amazons' really was.
