About the Author

Maggie on Maggie:

I was born and raised in a small town called Hamilton, in New Zealand, I was a bit of a handful as a toddler and very bossy! I had a perfectly happy childhood and spent a lot of time at the beach. I was obsessed with cutting and pasting, I loved making scrap books and collecting bits and bobs from every where I went. I was exceptionally messy and my room always looked a bit like a bomb had hit it. I loved writing stories and attempted to write a novel with my friend when we were about 12, we used to take turns writing a paragraph or two then passed it to the other – we spent hours doing this on her roof!

I live in Kensington in London, with my husband, 4 children and our crazy dog. I run a family members club and have designed a range of classes to inspire children and adults alike to have fun and get creative. I don’t have any formal experience or training; I am just a mum who likes to make stuff and get kids having fun whilst learning. My kids are very involved in all the ideas that I come up with and have road tested pretty much everything at the club and in the books!

Eight Things You Didn't Know About Maggie Bolger:

2. I love chocolate in all forms. I want to go to a cocoa plantation and see how it is made.

4. My children’s names are Azia, Oscar & India. They named their newest brother Oliver as it is their favourite movie. Our dog is called Coco.

6. I don’t like primary colours very much. My favourite colours are green & brown.

8. Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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

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.

Katie Lonsdale

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 Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
