"In lucid prose punctuated with wit, Abate explores how these books reflect significant changes in our cultural conceptions of childhood and adulthood."

"Insightful and well-written, No Kids Allowed is a highly enjoyable read. Abate rightly differentiates 'children's literature for adults' from texts for young readers that, like the Harry Potter books, also appeal to adults."

"No Kids Allowed is a provocative opening move in an academic discussion that is surprisingly unexplored."

"No Kids Allowed will make a substantive contribution to the field of children's literature. It promises to be of interest to a broader audience of people invested in and curious about children's books or, specifically, children's books that are created for adult audiences."
