Its the end of May! Hooray! Time for another author update, and this time, it is the brand new children’s laureate: Lauren Child!
Lauren Child is the award-winning author of the Ruby Redfort series, the Clarice Bean series, and many picture books. She is an illustrator of many published stories as well and she quoted “We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find.” She is admired by many middle-grade children and adults across the UK for her brilliant writing and illustrating skills.
Waterstones book shop quotes that “With a unique ability to see the world through a child’s eyes, the aptly named author and illustrator Lauren Child is one of the most influential and innovative writers of her generation.”
Lauren writes in all different kinds of genres, including spy/detective, picture books, funny stories and more. I strongly recommend reading some of her books as they are not only extremely gripping and hard to put down, but they are also very inspiring and can influence some very strong morals.
See you next time readers!
