Children of the Series and How They Grew
Or A Century of Heroines & Heroes, Romantic, Comic, Moral
Faye R. Kensinger
Children's series fiction comprises tales incorporating innocence and hard reality along with romance, wit, and character. Heavy streaks of morality diminished as the entertainment element increased. Heroes performed in a wide range of adventures, but restrictions often kept heroines close to home. Series fiction peaked, then waned, but such writers as Beverly Cleary and Madeleine L'Engle carried on the style.
