Blurb: 
Are some of the world"s most talented children"s book authors essentially children themselves? In this engaging series of essays, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alison Lurie considers this theory, exploring children"s classics from many eras and relating them to the authors who wrote them, including Little Women author Louisa May Alcott and The Wizard of Oz author Frank Baum, as well as Dr. Seuss and Salman Rushdie. Analyzing these and many others, Lurie shows how these gifted writers have used children"s literature to transfigure sorrow, nostalgia, and the struggles of their own experiences.
