About the Author
Nicholas Tucker lives in Lewes and was a teacher and educational psychologist before lecturing in Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex. He is the author of five books about children, childhood and reading, including The Rough Guides to Children's Books, 0-5 and 5-11, with a third volume on teenage reading to be published later this year. He has also written six books for children, broadcasts frequently and reviews widely in the national press. But most of what he has learned about children's literature over the years has come from reading to his three children and now to their own children as well.
