What the Scandinavians know about children’s literature


With Mariella Fostrup

I liked the comment from Professor Maria Nikolajeva when she quoted Leonard Helsing as saying ‘all pedagogical art is bad art, but all good art is pedagogical’. So if you write a children’s book from the point of view of creating good literature the learning will come naturally.

    Hi Jonathan,
    I was trying to chase down the Hellsing quote and came across your blog in the process – having done a little digging I think the author in question is actually “Lennart Hellsing”.
    Thought you might want to know!
    Cheers,
    David
