Children's Literature, Liberalism, and Unreliable Narrators

Susan of Texas, one of my favorite bloggers of all time, over at The Hunting of the Snark is very kindly hosting a spin off discussion of children's books and politics, or the politics of parenting through literature, or something. It is thread pulled from a winding post at Alicublog where my joking on the subject caused some of dear posters to assert that parental liberalism expressed in the form of Stankanovite literary criticism would turn a promising generation of progressive children into reflexive Alex Keatons. If you are reading books with and to your children, remember those halcyon days, or just like to talk about books, narration, theology, psychology, inter textuality, inter subjectivity, children and fantasy hop on over.
