Katherine Rundell was born in Kent and grew up in London, Zimbabwe and Belgium, and since 2008 has been a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. Her books for children include The Girl Savage, Rooftoppers, The Wolf Wilder, The Explorer, a picture book illustrated by Emily Sutton, One Christmas Wish and The Good Thieves. She has also written a book for adults, Why You Should Read Children’s Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise. Her work has been translated into thirty languages and has won, among others, the Costa Children’s Book Award, the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, the Blue Peter Award, the Boston Globe Horn Book Award in America, the Andersen Prize in Italy and Le Prix Sorcieres in France.
Rundell is the real deal, a writer of boundless gifts and extraordinary imaginative power whose novels will be read, cherished and reread long after most so-called "serious" novels are forgotten.
