Why You Should Read Children's Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise [9781526610072]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Katherine Rundell - Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and prize-winning author of five novels for children - explores how children's books ignite, and can re-ignite, the imagination; how children's fiction, with its unabashed emotion and playfulness, can awaken old hungers and create new perspectives on the world.

This delightful and persuasive essay is for adult readers.
AUTHOR: Katherine Rundell is the bestselling author of five children's novels, for which she has won the Costa Children's Book Award, the Blue Peter Book Award and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize amongst many others. She spent her childhood in Africa and Europe before taking her degree at the University of Oxford and becoming a Fellow of All Souls College. As well as writing, she studies Renaissance literature and is learning, very slowly, to fly a small aeroplane.
