Digital literature for children has gained a new dimen- sion with the proliferation of portable computers like tablets and smartphones in the past years. Scholarship, however, is still trying to catch up in capturing this rapidly changing phenomenon, and while in the fields of education and psychology a considerable body of work has been published recently on apps and other digital cultural products for children, from an aesthetic perspective the gap is still considerable. Digital literature for children: texts, readers and educational practices is a collection of essays edited by Mireia Manresa and Neus Real that combines aesthetic and educational approaches to examine this area, with a special focus on electronic literature (or e-lit) in app format, but also considering other forms and genres, such as web-based fiction, fan-fiction and cellphone novels.
