Children’s Literature in Education (CLE) is an international, refereed journal that has been publishing some of the best writing about children’s books since 1970. It is wide-ranging in its approach to the subject and the words ‘in education’ chiefly indicate that the editors have always believed that it is unwise to ignore young readers themselves when discussing their books. The journal appears quarterly and reaches a world-wide audience of teachers, academics, researchers, librarians, students and other enthusiasts. CLE is co-edited from the UK and from North America. It has published many very well-known authors (from Ted Hughes to Philip Pullman) and almost all the well-known critics in the field – but it is also very interested in submissions from first-time contributors. Unlike most academic journals, it actually pays its contributors, however modestly! Issues in 2003 have included articles on Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea Quintet, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, John Ryan the creator of Captain Pugwash, The Amber Spyglass, and other titles ranging from ‘The Magic of Harry Potter’ to ‘Capitalist Bears and Socialist Modernisation: Chinese Children’s Literature in the Post-Mao Period’. Eclectic or what?
