Editorial Reviews

?This selective list of 315 juvenile books focuses on countries rarely emphasized in ethnic bibliographies: Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia. Books are in English (some are translations) and are chosen for elementary and junior high school readers. The author sought suitable titles published in the twentieth century (through 1984); not all are in print. To be included, books were expected to meet acceptable literary criteria, ' although literary standards were balanced by other values. ... Titles are arranged by country, then by genre: traditional literature collections and single editions; historical fiction, biography, and autobiography; and other fiction. ... This book is recommended for school district libraries, public library systems, and academic curriculum/children's literature collections....?-Reference Books Bulletin
