Abstract

The purpose of the book is to emphasize the role of some women writers (who lived from 19th century to the present) who have devoted a large part of their editorial production to the field of children’s literature. Specifically, the research aims at highlighting how the female contribution has modified the antiquated structures and categories used within the literature for childhood. These writers proposed in their books dissonant and divergent characters compared to the custom of having courageous boys and silent and submissive girls as protagonists. Finally, the pedagogical value of some topics that appear repeatedly in their works is emphasized in order to make them fully usable at an educational level. The chapters also offer a comparative look at some European realities thanks to the scientific contribution of researchers from various geographical and scientific areas such as Italy, Slovenia, Russia, Greece, Austria, Germany, Poland, Portugal, UK and USA
