Judith Kerr (writer & illustrator)
Students are very curious about autobiographical books and they love to hear from the writers themselves the true story of their life and books.
Note: The beloved children's books author, Judith Kerr passed away on the 23 May 2019, aged 95.
"Over a 50-year career she published more than 30 further books, immortalizing a succession of family cats through the naughty but lovable Mog, and bringing to life her family’s flight across Europe as the Nazis came to power in the novel When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit."
