BookBrunch Children's column - crowded January

| No Comments
January used to be a quiet month for children's books. The conventional deluge, as in all genres, was in the autumn, in the hope of grabbing a share of the Christmas market. High-selling paperbacks, humour books and light reads came out in the early summer, for holiday reading. Non-fiction was big in August/September for back-to-school. And the spring was busy, with an eye to the Easter-round-ups. But increasingly in recent years January has come in like a lion. It is perceived to be a time of year that gives significant new titles a chance, and takes advantage of Book Token business, while big names are no longer held back.

This year, for instance, the month is graced by some of our finest children's writers.... NICOLETTE JONES
