This month, Dame Jacqueline Wilson, the enormously prolific children’s writer and former Children’s Laureate, describes her choice of book:
My recommended book is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. The text is magical—but the wonderful illustrations really tell the story. All children identify with Max and also love pretending to be Wild Things. It’s a fantastic book to share.
Jacqueline’s book Hetty Feather was recently adapted for the stage and is on tour before returning to the West End.
