An essay I wrote on danger in children’s literature appeared in the Spring 2015 “The Alchemy of Print” issue of The Sewanee Review. In it, I trace the origins of danger imagery, starting with fairy tales by the Grimm Brothers, and move up to present day, interviewing Gregory Maguire, Kelly Barnhill, and Mac Barnett. (If you can’t locate the Review in your library, an excerpt can be found here.) Enjoy!
