Spotlight on Swapna Haddow

Swapna Haddow is a versatile writer and has given us a wealth of children’s literature, including picturebooks, illustrated fiction and novels. Her new illustrated series Bad Panda is already hugely popular with children and adults alike.  Swapna brings us humour in abundance, whilst also tackling misconceptions and social issues too. Look out for her latest title Torn Apart - The Partition of India, 1947, in which she gives a balanced fictional account of the challenges faced through this dramatic time in Indian history from the viewpoint of children living through the changes.

Review Panel Choices

This month we have particularly enjoyed A Glasshouse of Stars by Shirley Marr, which is a timely exploration of immigration and resilience; See What I Can Do! a diverse picturebook, The Peculiar Tentacle Boy and the latest title in the brilliant Tindims series and the new title from the lovely Kiran Millwood Hargrave with sublime illustrations from Tom de Freston. Further insights in the podcast interview In the Reading Corner.
