Kid Lit HQ

Authors’ Stories

As you all know, here in MS READaTHON HQ reading is what we love... but we're also absolutely head over heels about our favourite authors! So we asked some of our favourite authors and illustrators about the books they’ve written, what they like to read, and we’ve asked them for some advice for all budding writers!

Find out what they had to say!

Who Makes a Book?

Have you ever thought about all the things that go into making a book? It’s not just the person who writes the story; lots of different people are involved in getting a story from the writer’s imagination to the bookshelves and into your hands!

So, here at MS READaTHON HQ we decided to take a look behind the scenes! We asked some of Ireland's leading children's literature professionals to answer questions about the wonderful world of books.  

Happy reading!
