Hey, buster! Normal life is a total yawn. So break out boredom with multi-million-copy bestselling author Lauren Child, and meet your new favourite heroine… Ruby Redfort: detective, secret agent, thirteen-year-old kid.
Before Lauren starting writing and illustrating children’s books she started her own company ‘Chandeliers for the People’ making exotic, elegant lampshades. It was only when she came to write and illustrate the book Clarice Bean, That’s Me that she decided to devote her time to writing and illustrating books for children, which combines her fascination for childhood and her talent for designing and creating. Lauren gets her inspiration from other people’s conversations or from seeing something funny happen.
Lauren lives in North London.(This was taken from Lauren’s Goodreads profile)
