Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Making of children's books

This splendidly acidic piece by Nicholas Lezard was published in The Guardian way back on May 5th, but for some reason it escaped me at the time, and I have only just come across it.

I would like to name and shame Diane Redmond, author, if that is the word, of Scoop Saves the Day, one in a series of Bob the Builder books published by the most cynical arm of the BBC. Ms Redmond knows she has written a work of pure dreck which goes on for about as long as Hamlet, and so her name only appears in minuscule print on the back cover. Well, she can run, but she can't hide. If ever there was a candidate for book-burning, this is it, but even I am not mean enough to do that.
