RIP Judith Kerr

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

RIP Judith Kerr

Isn't that sad. How amazing it must be to write a simple book for one's own children which later gives you a pension and a hobby! So many started that way. JK looks a very nice person.

We loved her books ... I still have some of them ... a real talent ... thank goodness she lived :D

Yes, The tiger who came to tea - wonderful book, an absolute favourite and so sad when he never came back to visit :(

Absolutely, Suffs,

Amazing to see that she's got a new one coming out next month and so glad she was named Illustrator of the year at last week's British Book Awards.
