    schema:description "Often, literature for children appears in the form of series, in which familiar characters appear in book after book. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, authors began to write science fiction series for children. Much has been written about these early series, particularly the Tom Swift books, but comparatively little has been written about the wide variety of juvenile science fiction series of the second half of the 20th century. This book provides a critical look at the history, themes, settings, characters, and construction of juvenile science fiction series published since 1945. The volume looks at such topics as animals and aliens in science fiction, attitudes toward humor, and the handling of science. As a special feature, the book provides a listing of the various series."@en ;
