In the 18th century a new genre is born - Children's literature, one dominated by an eclectic group of British writers familiar to us from our childhoods. Daniel Defoe pens Robinson Crusoe while Lewis Carroll authors Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Beatrix Potter publishes The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and A.A. Milne creates Winnie the Pooh. J. R. R. Tolkien writes The Hobbit, and Roald Dahl publishes James and the Giant Peach. J. K. Rowling Introduces Harry Potter.
