Ailie, Baddiel, Ivor, Jubb, Sophie Busby - Authors

Ivor Baddiel and Sophie Jubb are prolific children's writers, perhaps explained by the fact that they have a little girl and boy themselves. Sophie teaches young children and uses her stories in lessons. Ivor used to be a teacher but is now a scriptwriter for television and radio, having also written a children's book on football for Dorling Kindersley and four Unexplained titles for Macdonald Young Books. Ailie Busby was born in London and grew up in Corby, Northamptonshire. She studied graphic design at Nene College, illustration at East Anglia Polytechnic in Cambridge and printmaking at Chelsea and Westminster College. Ailie's wonderfully observant eye and her sense of humour bring great charm and fun to her illustrations. She has previously been published by Orion, Egmont and Scholastic and titles include Hey, Diddle Diddle, Rosie's Zoo and Christmas is Coming, as well as the successful large format nursery rhyme book, Time for a Rhyme. She lives in Newcastle with her husband and two young children.

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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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!
