'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' - Observer

'Rundell's pen is gold-tipped' - Sunday Times
_______________

Katherine Rundell – Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and prize-winning author of five novels for children – explores how children’s books ignite, and can re-ignite, the imagination; how children's fiction, with its unabashed emotion and playfulness, can awaken old hungers and create new perspectives on the world. This delightful and persuasive essay is for adult readers.

Philip Pullman on The Explorer

«As an unashamed lover and reader of children's literature, I adored Katherine Rundell's Why You Should Read Children's Books ... [it's] time to remind yourself of the reason you fell in love with books and reading in the first place»

Observer New Review

«It’s a very short book but it packs a real punch. Rundell makes an irresistible case and reminds you of the wonder and excitement of reading, discovering and learning. She is a brilliant and ferocious communicator; I found her use of language and some of her tropes thrilling and fascinating and enormously generative. A real delight»

FT readers’ best books of 2019 Financial Times

«The Costa Award-winning children’s author makes an impassioned case for adults to continue reading children’s books. She explains what they can teach us, including kindness and courage, risk-taking and morality.»
