Enchanted Hunters: The Power of Stories by Maria Tatar (2009)

Enchanted Hunters: The Power of Stories in ChildhoodEnchanted Hunters: The Power of Stories in Childhood by Maria Tatar
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This seems to go here, there and everywhere and lacked a coherent theme.  I wasn't ever quite sure what the point was, other than the really broad stroke of "children's literature changes children's lives and is powerful."  Tatar ticks off all the greats - J.R.R. Tolkien, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass, Charlotte's Web, A Wrinkle in Time, Dr. Seuss, Narnia, Hans Christian Andersen - but it was kind of like mixing different kinds of paint.  At first it was really colorful and pretty and interesting, but then turned grey at the end.
