Mandy Stanley - Author

Mandy Stanley was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk. She has a BA from Nottingham University which led her initially into a career in fashion. A subsequent interest in the drawing and illustrative areas of her occupation, coupled with an earlier course at Great Yarmouth College of art and design, initiated a move into freelance illustrative work.

Early work on baby products was followed by illustrations in childrens books. The natural progression was then to create her own characters, beginning with ‘Babe’.

Mandy has a great love of films particularly children’s films and regularly attends theatre and ballet. She has won awards for soft toy designs for young children on sale throughout the country.

She continues to work as a designer and illustrator in Suffolk.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
