In our new monthly feature, we will focus the spotlight on writers and illustrators, asking about their favourite childhood reading, current work and why they love to read. You can also download a simple poster about them for use in school. We have a great line-up planned, including MG Leonard, Mini Grey, Nicky Singer, SF Said, Ross Montgomery and many more. So come back each month to get to know a new author.
