(p. v) Acknowledgments

In addition to our talented contributors, we would like to thank several other individuals and institutions who assisted us in the creation of this book. First, thanks are due to the University of Texas College of Liberal Arts, which supported production of this book with a generous subvention grant that allowed us to include many wonderful children’s book illustrations and otherwise to improve the book’s production quality. We would also like to acknowledge our home departments, the Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers University and the Department of American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, both of which provided institutional support. The Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin, where Julia was an Honorary Fellow during the 2009–10 academic year, provided facilities support during the period that this book was in its final months of completion. Special thanks to Peter Hunt for offering valuable comments on an early draft of the book’s introduction. We also appreciate the authors, illustrators, and publishers who allowed us to reprint their work. Patrick Cox and Deborah Valentine, of the Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers University, provided much-appreciated assistance with manuscript preparation. Thanks also to Philis Barragan, Amy Ware, Judith Plotz, Jack Zipes, and the students in Julia’s summer 2009 Children’s Literature and American Culture course, who offered useful input at various points in the process. Shannon McLachlan and Brendan O’Neill at Oxford University Press have been wonderful editors to work with. Finally, we would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Howard Marchitello, Dan Birkholz, Lena Birkholz, and Edie Birkholz for their camaraderie, good humor, and distractions throughout the process.
