Many writers have resisted the standardisation of the age and have written books which are individual, contemporary and enduring. Names like Beatrix Potter and Edward Ardizzone, E. Nesbit and Mary Norton, Kipling and Rosemary Sutcliff represent the highest reaches of this century. On the other hand, the formula stories are not forgotten, since they play their small part in the development of taste.

The author, who is on the staff of Kent County Library, has also edited Chosen for Children, an illustrated account of the books awarded the Library Association Carnegie Medal from 1936 to 1957.
