First published in 1969, Only Connect is widely accepted as an essential volume for everyone concerned with children's and young adults' literature. This new edition offers a new selection of more than 40 essays and brief studies on history and criticism, literary standards, changing tastes, science fiction, young adult literature, fantasy, the problem novel, racism, and sexism. None of the articles have been featured in either of the previous two editions. Among the essayists are Joan Aiken, Margaret Mahy, P.L. Travers, Perry Nodelman, Brian Attebery, John Rowe Townsend, Myra Cohn Livingston, Peter Hunt, and Jane Yolen. Its assembled learning, common sense, and wit are certain to help librarians, authors, critics, and parents "connect" with children's literature, and thus with the children themselves.

<p Sheila Egoff discovered the public library in her hometown of Galt, Ontario, at age eight, more than eighty years ago. Her love of books led to a life devoted to the promotion of children's literature and librarianship. Sheila was the first curator of the famous Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books, which she was also partly responsible for bringing to Canada. In 1962, she moved west to help set up the library school at the University of British Columbia. Many of today's children's librarians credit Sheila with instilling in them a philosophy of librarianship that values literary quality and bringing books to each and every child. Sheila is the author of several important books about Canadian children's literature. She passed away in May 2005.</p <p </p

Wendy Sutton, professor emerita, taught both elementary and secondary school before joining the Department of Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia. A well-respected presenter at conferences in Canada, the US and Great Britain, Wendy Sutton chaired many major committees as a member of the National Council of Teachers of English and contributed regularly to language arts journals. Still active at the university, she is now retired and serves as a language arts/children's literature consultant. <br <br
