Dina Rabinovitch Heralds A Golden Age

Guardian Unlimited | Columnists | The greatest stories ever told

"We are right in the thick of a golden age of children's literature," says Dina Rabinovitch, at the start of a long feature in today's Guardian, arguing that it is now children's literature that is exerting the same gravitational pull that stage drama did in the Elizabethan Age, and the novel did in the nineteenth century.

So how is it, she asks, that it is only a handful of names that are widely known. It's certainly not the publishers' fault. Rabinovich gives examples of some of the more lavish launches of recent times. She rounds on the media... "The books pages in the national press are sticking to their occasional round-ups of children's books; non-specialist TV and radio aren't interested either... ...It is a mark of these fertile times that the arts reviewing is lagging behind the news."
