Fantasy has been an important and much-loved part of children's literature for hundreds of years, yet relatively little has been written about it. Children's Fantasy Literature traces the development of the tradition of the children's fantastic - fictions specifically written for children and fictions appropriated by them - from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, examining the work of Lewis Carroll, L. Frank Baum, C. S. Lewis, Roald Dahl, J. K. Rowling and others from across the English-speaking world. The volume considers changing views on both the nature of the child and on the appropriateness of fantasy for the child reader, the role of children's fantasy literature in helping to develop the imagination, and its complex interactions with issues of class, politics and gender. The text analyses hundreds of works of fiction, placing each in its appropriate context within the tradition of fantasy literature.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 25. Chapters: Bartimaeus (book series), List of Bartimaeus characters, Magic in Bartimaeus, Ptolemy's Gate, The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye, The Ring of Solomon. Excerpt: The following is a list of characters in the Bartimaeus series by Jonathan Stroud. One of the trio of major characters in the series. In the first book, The Amulet of Samarkand, he is a 12 year old boy who is a magician in training, great admirer of William Gladstone, and foils a coup organized by Simon Lovelace and saves the life of the Prime Minister, Rupert Devereaux. In the second book, The Golem's Eye, after assuming a post in the government, he works towards stopping insurgent attacks in London and also attempting to destroy a golem and unmask the identity of its master. In the third book, he is caught up in a revolution by the djinn on earth (mainly planned by Faquarl and Nouda), but ultimately manages to crush it. In this book, he also becomes aware of the corruptness of the magician government and he seems to desire separation from it and a return to his older and happier life. This is made significant when he faces his greatest fear (as the magician John Mandrake) and divulges his true name to Kitty Jones. Over the course of the trilogy, Nathaniel, the innocent young boy hungry for knowledge, is transformed into the arrogant John Mandrake. By the end of book three he becomes more responsible and honourable, more like his younger self. In his final moment, just before he sacrifices himself to kill the demon Nouda, he dismisses Bartimaeus, claiming that he would only botch the job and that dismissal would be the only way to get it right, although it is hinted by both Bartimaeus and Nathaniel that this is a last act of kindness and goodwill toward his long-suffering djinn. It is mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate that he is the strongest magician on...
