Each volume of Novels for Students contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 12 to 15 works from various cultures and time periods. Each novel included was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians — experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference’s content.

Each volume (beginning with volume 32) will include two “Literature to Film” entries. Entries profiling film versions of plays/novels not only diversify the study of plays/novels but support alternate learning styles, media literacy, and film studies curricula as well.
