About the Book

Cervantes is regarded as the author of the first novel and the inventor of fiction. From its publication in 1605, Don Quixote—recently named the world’s best book by authors from 54 countries—has been widely translated and imitated. Among its less acknowledged imitations are stories in children’s literature.
This book explores the noble and “mad” adventures retold by distinguished writers and artists in Edwardian books, collections, home libraries, schoolbooks and picture books internationally—as well as more recent adaptions including comics and graphic novels—that deviate from traditional retellings yet still speak to the knight-errant’s lasting influence and appeal to children.
