Swapna Haddow: Author of the Month

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 the delightful What if Pig? by Linzie Hunter which is a tender picturebook exploring anxiety and worries; Captain Toby a fantasy adventure picturebook and the latest title from the supremely talented Satoshi Kitamura; the first in Chitra Sounder’s new series: Nikhil and Jay Save the Day and the historical novel championing women’s football: Our Beautiful Game by Lou Kuenzler.
