Product Details

Praise

To celebrate 20 years of the U.K.’s Children’s Laureate program, the first 10 to be appointed to the position offer remarks on their craft…the personal statements are new and the contents assembled in an appealingly informal way that invites younger audiences to the party as well as readers who have grown up with these authors and illustrators. Riddell’s caricatures at the end are alone worth the price of admission. A genial salute to and from the original corps of children’s-literature ambassadors.
—Kirkus Reviews

Ten British children’s laureates discuss their inspiration and their creative processes in this imported anthology, offering up ideas and activities that will be a boon to language arts educators…For teachers and librarians, especially those working in art and writing with elementary-school children, this is a valuable resource.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
