About the Author

Charlotte Guillain worked as a bookseller, an English teacher and an editor before becoming an author. She has written more than 100 books, both fiction and non-fiction. She always wanted to be a writer and her top tip is to read as much as you can.

Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-These short biographies introduce famous children's book authors. A question at the top of each spread is answered by a few sentences below. The texts briefly cover the authors' early lives, books and common themes, outside interests, and, most importantly, what spurred them to begin writing. Guillain also dedicates a spread to the illustrations (and illustrators, where applicable). The large pictures depict important settings, photos of the authors and their books, and movie stills. However, the lack of clear captions greatly reduces their effectiveness, and the time lines are too brief to be useful. While they are too short for reports, these books might spur young readers to seek more detailed accounts of these authors' lives. The "About the Author" series (Rosen/PowerKids Pr) is a better choice. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
