Katherine Rundell - Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and prize-winning author of five novels for children - explores how children’s books ignite and can reignite the imagination - how children's fiction, with its unabashed emotion and playfulness, can awaken old hungers and create new perspectives on the world.

"Rundell is the real deal, a writer of boundless gifts and extraordinary imaginative power whose novels will be read, cherished and reread long after most so-called 'serious' novels are forgotten." (Observer)
