Detailed Description

The Professor in Children’s Literature: An Anthology

Melissa M. Terras

From the ineffectual and baffled Professor Ptthmllnsprts in Charles Kingsley’s The Water Babies to the conceited Professor Wogglebug in Frank Baum’s The Emerald City of Oz, the image of the professor settles into the stereotype of the male, mad, muddlehead. This anthology draws together both well-known and rediscovered characters in books marketed to a young audience between 1871 and 1933, indicating that the suspicion of experts and the mistrust of science has a long history.
