Flavorwire's 10 Best Authors of Children's Literature
A list from Flavorwire in 2012.
I've read 8/10 of these authors! Not every work by them of course, but at least a sampling.
Lois Lowry's The Giver is astonishing (my gushing review from last year) and there is a movie version coming out very soon.
I've only read one E.L. Konigsburg (From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler), but have two more in the house waiting patiently for their turn.
I guess I need to read Lloyd Alexander and Philip Pullman! But fantasy isn't really my genre. Indeed I suspect it's my least favourite genre.
