People often ask if we buy books. I always reply yes, particularly children’s books, and only if we want them. This is one author, among a handful of children’s authors, whose books I always want and always say yes to. If you have any PLEASE bring them in! A multi-faceted talent covering a whole range of genres and ages Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world’s best-loved children’s books, and was the 2011-2013 Children’s Laureate. Her picture books include the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Julia also writes fiction, including the PRINCESS MIRROR-BELLE series illustrated by Lydia Monks as well as poems, plays and songs — and her brilliant live shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between West Sussex and Edinburgh.
One of the all time most popular authors of children’s books. According to some sources she has sold more books than J.K. Rowling!
