Summary
  • "You're Only Young Twice reveals the complexities that underlie even the sparest picture book text and the lessons that reside in even the most familiar family movie plots." "This book redirects the focus on children's literature, asking not "What messages should children receive?" but "What messages do adults actually send?" For example, Morris recounts his own childhood confusion upon viewing Peter Pan, with its queenish, inept pirate and a grown woman (Mary Martin) in tights who pretends to be a crowing boy." "Morris shatters our long-held assumptions and challenges our best intentions demonstrating how children's literature and film lay bare a troubled and troubling worldview."--Jacket
