Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Who is your favorite children’s books author and why?
Oh, so many, many, many authors! I have three large bookcases, and one of them is all my children’s books. But who comes to mind first?
My favorite picture book author is James Stevenson, especially for his delightful Grandpa and Uncle Wainey books, though not exclusively. A series of tall tales, they’re over the top and very funny even for an older reader.
My favorite author when I was a kid was Gordon Korman, a simply hilarious writer. The slot Terry Pratchett fills in my adult life, Korman occupied in my childhood. His books from the 70s and 80s are best, when he was practically a child himself (my favorite of his series he wrote while in high school!)
And I have so many favorite classic British children’s fantasy authors.
Who are your favorite children’s authors? I’m always up for a new recommendation!
