A new Sunday Times video series starts today. Every week, on our website and here on the tablet edition, our highly regarded children’s book editor, Nicolette Jones, will be bringing you up to date on all that is new for younger readers in a series of short, informative films.
She begins with a look at the explosion in outstanding illustrated non-fiction for young readers. Future videos will feature interviews with authors such as David Baddiel and Philip Reeve, Jones’s selection of favourite poetry books for children, and a fun look at what to buy for Halloween.
