Is Saturday morning TV as bad as it seems? Should I give my daughter a Barbie? Have I failed as a parent if my son keeps asking for military toys? How is the violence they see around them affecting kids today?With clarity and humour, McDonnell discusses why pop culture is an irresistible lure to kids and why it binds them together in a subculture of their own.
Kathleen McDonnell is an award-winning author and playwright of adult and children’s literature, including The Notherland Journeys series – The Nordlings, The Shining World, and The Songweavers – and Honey, We Lost the Kids. Born in Chicago, Kathleen lives in Toronto with her family.
