Brilliant quote, when children's books are children's books they are not worth reading. Roger Lancelyn Green is familiar to me for his connection to C.S. Lewis.

Cornflower

Yes, he writes beautifully about Lewis later in the chapter from which that passage comes.

That quote explains a huge amount about why some children's books have long lives and others disappear as though they had never existed.
I am sure I remember Roger Lancelyn Green from a book of Greek myths I was given when I was ten which so fascinated me that I re-read it so often it eventually fell apart despite my always being very careful with my books.

Not come across this book about children's books before. I see it was printed in 1964; will be adding it to my collection started when I wrote a thesis on Children's Books many, many years ago!
