Product description

Following the successful format of FAVOURITE WRITERS, this book provides short introductions to the life and work of some the best-known classic children's writers from around the world, from Lewis Carroll to Tolkein, and Frances Hodgson Burnett to E B White. Introducing key writers whose contribution to literature is unquestioned, the book devotes one spread to each of 13 of them. Each will includes a short biography, brief summaries and quotes from key works, and a short quote by a contemporary writer. A further six are briefly covered on the final spread. Illustrated with historical pictures and photos and written in a punchy and succinct style, this is an engaging and useful source of introductory information on classic writers that children will encounter in English classes and in their own reading.
