Lavishly color-illustrated, the 2012 volume of Moon City Review centers on children’s literature and its increasingly blurry borderlands. MCR 2012 offers a variable feast of poetry, fiction, criticism, graphic arts, and “archival treasures” by Rose O’Neill, Robert Wallace, and Young E. Allison (author of “Derelict” or “Dead Man’s Chest”), all for and/or about children and young adults. Contributors include D. Gilson, David Harrison, Jean Stringam, and Laura Lee Washburn.

Sarah Smedman), Lois Lowry, and Theme Exploration: A Voyage of Discovery.


Linda Trinh Moser is professor of English at Missouri State University, where she teaches the literature of multiculturalism. Her books include Contemporary Literature: 1970 to the Present (with Kathryn West) and an edition of Winnifred Eaton’s Me: a Book of Remembrance.
