"... Loty Petrovits-Andrutsopulou
is a very well known and accomplished authoress of children's
books who has occupied herself with Children's Literature
study, but she has also worthily represented our country
in international movements and meetings about it. In
this book she states, with no illusions, her very interesting
personal views about today's value of Children's Literature
and conveys viewpoints from international conferences
and questions about the role of children's books...
Her views and accounts can be the subject of speculation
and further research on that issue, exactly because
they come from a specialist."
C. Malafantis, DIAVAZO magazine, no 357, November 1995
"... A useful book that informs, makes us think
and will probably give rise to further theoretical approaches

"... I reckon that the authoress' offer to the
study of children's books is particularly remarkable,
because it is only the creator who can deeply penetrate
into the creation and particularly when he/she is the
creator of the domain itself, as Petrovits is in this
case. The book in view is divided into three parts...
Each one (part), of course, has its own interest as
well as aims and each one, at its end, has its Greek
and foreign bibliography, wherever that is necessary.
However, all of them are characterized by admirable
density of style and well-timed substantiation, but
also clarity and agility of word so as each essay, each
proposal to form (and it does form) "the substantial
and invaluable of the whole", something that exists,
you can see it, you can sense it as a part of Ms. Petrovits.
This is why I said before that she is well versed in
her domain... This kind of essays deserve to be read
by people who wish to broaden their horizons as far
as literature and education in general are concerned.
They break new ground to our interests always in connection
with the child and its contemporary surroundings, with
their good points and, above all, their dangers..."
