Literary Criticism
ABSTRACT
The article argues that more books for children on game hunting are needed. Hunters and hunting is almost universally reviled in contemporarily available children's literature. The most notable anti-hunting book is "Bambi," by Felix Salten. In "First French Kiss and Other Traumas," author Adam Bagdasarian uses hunting as a negative rite of passage. Jane Resh Thomas's "Fox in a Trap" and Mary Casanova's "Moose Tracks" and "Wolf Shadows" understand hunting culture.
