Guardian Unlimited Books | By genre | Author of the month: Louise Rennison

The Guardian's Children's Author of the Month, profiled in yesterday's paper, was Louise Rennison. Dina Rabinovitch emphasised the level of Rennison's success in the States:

While teenagers - and adults - here have picked up speech mannerisms from TV series like Friends (ever used the phrase "Duh?"), no US book has influenced British readers with its language in the way Rennison's slang has affected Americans.

A recent bargain on ACHUKA Auctions was a signed and numbered UK proof of It's Ok I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers! Further Confessions Of Georgia Nicolson, snapped up for under ?6! Look out for further Rennison proofs, to be listed shortly.
