Barking with the Big Dogs : On Writing and Reading Books for Children

Bok av Natalie Babbitt
In this collection of essays and speeches written over the course of four decades, this beloved storyteller explores what it was like to be a "little dog" in the literary world, continually being forced to justify her choice to write books for children - instead of doing something more serious. Filled with incisive commentary on classic children's books as well as contemporary works, Barking with the Big Dogs offers colorful insight into the creative life of a writer who was a true literary giant of her day. Includes an introduction by Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate, photographs, and other illustrations.
