Favourite Classic Writers Summary

Favourite Classic Writers by Nikki Gamble

Providing short introductions to the life and work of 14 of the best-known classic children's writers from around the world, this book covers authors from Lewis Carroll to Tolkien, and Frances Hodgson Burnett to E.B. White. Looking at key writers whose contribution to literature is unquestioned, the book devotes one spread to each of them. Each includes a short biography, brief summaries and quotes from key works and a short quote by a contemporary writer. A further six are briefly covered on the final spread. Illustrated with historical pictures and photos, this book should be a useful source of information on classic writers that children will encounter in English classes and in their own reading.

Informative, encouraging and well illustrated. - TES Teacher

For teachers and young project searchers these guides will make useful source material. - The School Librarian
