Creepy! And unAmerican!

As we read through children's classics with our son, I'm continually struck by the difference between the British and American books we read to him. There always seems to be an underlying creepiness to the British authors that is replaced by gumption and I dunno, hope/learning etc. with the American authors. You dig into an Edward Eager story knowing that everything is going to be ok. Not so with E. Nesbit. Even when tragedy strikes, because people do die even in American children's classics, everybody remaining pulls forward.
