Reviews

"Harry Potter and the Other offers an essential intervention both in Harry Potter studies and in children’s literature studies more generally, explicating with great erudition and care the promise and limits of Rowling’s fantasies of multiculturalism. "

- Tison Pugh, author of Harry Potter and Beyond: On J. K. Rowling’s Fantasies and Other Fictions

"Harry Potter and the Other provides a current set of theoretical approaches to the Potter series that is extremely welcome. What sets this collection apart is its focus in meaningful ways on social systems that seek to silence and oppress. "

- Gwen Athene Tarbox, author of Children’s and Young Adult Comics and coeditor of Graphic Novels for Children and Young Adults: A Collection of Critical Essays
