Just taking a moment to think about Judith Kerr as she died today.
Feel free to look back over my old blog posts as it is not that long ago that I visited the superb Judith Kerr exhibition that is currently running at The Discover Children's Stories Centre in East London. If you get a chance to visit I really recommend it. It seems particularly important now, especially if, like me, you have been touched by the amazing contribution that Judith made to the world of Children's Literature. Imagine how poorer the world would be if Mog had never been in it.
When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit was a book that I remember vividly from my own childhood and I still own a copy of When The Tiger Came To Tea that both my own children adored (as did I).
Thank you Judith for all your wonderful stories. We will miss you, but your characters will live on.

I have an article in Words and Pictures this week, all about a masterclass I attended on world building that was run by Penny Thomas, co-founder of Firefly Press.
