A Sea Change
By Betty Gilderdale
145 years of New Zealand junior fiction
A Sea Change is the first comprehensive survey of New Zealand literature for children. Beginning with the first 'settler' stories of the nineteenth century, often written by authors who had never left England, Betty Gilderdale traces the development of junior fiction about New Zealand and by New Zealanders from 1833 to the present.
Each chapter considers one of the major themes which have appeared in New Zealand children's literature and includes a bibliography, and the book features an extensive chronological bibliography of junior titles.
A Sea Change is essential reading for librarians, teachers, and anyone with an interest in New Zealand literature.
