The meanings of pictures in illustrated books for children

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

This project is positioned within children’s literature research and concerns a widespread text type for children which holds a long tradition in the field of children’s literature, namely ‘illustrated books’. More specifically, we wish to explore the meanings and functions of pictures in illustrated books. As pictures in picturebooks have received extensive attention from children’s literature researchers, pictures in illustrated books have so far been neglected. In this project we will argue that pictures in illustrated books must be taken into account in order to fully understand the richness and complexity of the illustrated book as text type.

In order to make our argument, we will draw on picturebook theory and analyse a selection of Norwegian author Alf Prøysen’s classic stories about Mrs Pepperpot, which have been illustrated by different illustrators. The following research questions will be scrutinized: How can illustrated books be analysed in view of theoretical insights from picturebook research? Which meanings may pictures in illustrated books hold? In this way the project aims to stress the meanings of pictures in illustrated books and challenge the conventional divide between illustrated books and picturebooks in the field of children’s literature. Additionally, the project also aims to develop additional knowledge about Alf Prøysen’s Mrs Pepperpot stories and the many illustrators who have contributed to them.
