Our trivia questions are a bit late this week, but here they are:
50. This Canadian author trained as a librarian and children’s literature specialist. When she was in her 30’s, she started writing and her books started winning awards. Several of them have won the Sheila A. Egoff Children’s Literature Prize. She says her favorite book is “Alice in Wonderland” written by one of our featured authors from the last trivia post. Maybe that inspired the humor in her picture book, The Queen’s Feet.
51. This English author is best known for his very popular series of books about four children and their adventures during school holidays in the country. He was inspired to write the books after his own summer adventure of teaching a family friend’s five children to sail. At the time he was a respected journalist, but he quit and devoted his time to write children’s literature. His books, in turn, influenced many other children’s authors.
Do you know who these authors are?
Edit: The answers are now posted.
