Who is your favourite children’s author or illustrator?

We asked some of our staff this question, and the answers were varied…

Abigail says “Probably A. A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh) and Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland).” She even named her puppy Winnie the Pooh!

Sonya likes Beatrix Potter. Her favourite story is ‘The tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck’.

Emma was an avid reader as a child, having tackled ‘Lord of the Rings’ at age 11! She also enjoyed Enid Blyton and the Nancy Drew books.

David’s favourite is Mem Fox. He says, “Where is the Green Sheep and Hunwick’s Egg are big hits at my place.”

Julie says that while it is a hard choice, she would have to pick Jez Alborough or Lynley Dodd.

Symon’s favourite book as a child was ‘Whistle up the Chimney’, written by Nan Hunt and illustrated by Craig Smith.
