Hi All

In my Children's Lit class, which I am teaching this semester, we end up
talking a lot about absent parents, and how "bad" parents are taboo in
Children's Lit - like parents can DIE, but actively being neglectful is
pretty unusual, and I find it interesting that DWJ is one of the few
writers willing to break this taboo. C&C seems to me to be a book where the
parents really are terrible, but I wonder if I am affected by rereading it
as an adult.

Thoughts?
