Vale Margaret Mahy

Renowned, award winning and popular New Zealand children’s author Margaret Mahy has died at the age of 76.

Throughout her career she published more than 200 titles, and her books were translated into more than a dozen languages.

Mahy was the recipient of numerous honours and awards and the year she turned 70 she was awarded perhaps the most prestigious – the Hans Christian Andersen Award for her lasting contribution to children’s literature.

Here are some of her titles.

Here is an article about her life and work.

Rest In Peace.

RIP Maurice Sendak

This week children’s literature has lost a shining light. Maurice Sendak the creator of the much loved children’s classic Where the Wild Things Are has passed away.

He was without question an interesting man and when I have time I will try and dig up an interview to post but in the mean time, I can’t draw but the talented Felice Arena has created this and I think it says it all.
