""This stellar book extends teachers' thinking well beyond 'book spaces' and into 'digital spaces' by offering theorized approaches to analyzing children's literature across media, and careful descriptions of effective learning activities that are rich in detail and practical advice. This book (and its digital spaces) is an indispensable guide to engaging with children's literature and new digital media."
Michele Knobel, Montclair State University, USA.

"The book overall is exciting, informative and practical, outlining important theoretical perspectives and ideas while also providing much wisdom and advice to teachers about how to transform their literary programs."
Frances Christie, Emeritus Professor of Language and Literacy Education, University of Melbourne and Honorary Professor of Education, University of Sydney, Australia. "
