Re: The Golden Ages of children´s literature

The First and Second Golden Ages of Children's Literature certainly isn't a concept made up by me. The stuff about the Third and "Fourth Golden Age" (not a thing?) is my own speculation about how modern books seem different now. I published that post years ago and add new bits and pieces occasionall...

Re: The Golden Ages of children´s literature

If you ever need references for a paper, try the library of the institution in which you're enrolled. Your fees should include access to many journals. I recommend asking one of the librarians for further help.

Re: Natural painting software shootout

Hi Dave, It really depends on personal preference when the price is so similar. I would say don't bother with Rebelle 3 unless you have a powerful graphics card. The way the paint interacts with the paper is expensive on your hardware. Assuming you have a decent graphics card (mine is a few years ol...

Re: Five Guys in Silicon Valley and elsewhere

Good point, I've only ever seen one Queer Eye episode -- the one that was shot locally (in Yass). It was a Big Deal when those guys arrived in town. Are their personalities amped up to similar extremes? I left Christopher Robin out of the Pooh ensemble because he's basically functioning as narrator,...

Re: Naïve illustration in picture books

Traugot had nine brothers? Three of them were artists, I'm guessing? (I've only ever seen three mentioned.)

Re: Pigs in art and children's literature

Oh good, I'm glad the first comment on this new forum is about pigs. When I set up the word cloud last week in a widget update I was surprised to find how many times I have mentioned pigs on this blog. I don't even think Olivia the Pig realises she's a pig, does she? (Let alone food.) I can see some...

Welcome

Would you like to discuss short stories, children's literature, film and TV with an emphasis on narrative theory? Are you inclusive, liberal and respectful? If this describes you, haere mai. Take a seat and help yourself to the tea and cakes.
