About the Author

Anna McQuinn trained as a teacher, specialising in Children's Literature, and worked directly with children for a number of years before moving into publishing. Since then, she has been working in children's publishing for over 20 years - as an editor, publisher and writer, as well as running workshops and courses in schools and libraries. Currently she combines both these areas, working part time as a Community Librarian for Sure Start Acton, running Mother & Toddler Groups and Family Book Groups in Acton Library. Anna spends the rest of the time writing. She is author of over 25 children's books and is a voracious reader. Rosalind Beardshaw has been illustrating for over 10 years. "I grew up in Sheffield," she says. "Thanks to creative parents I was encouraged to draw (and use fuzzy felt!) and was taken to art galleries on rainy Saturday afternoons.My favourite subject at school was Art so it was an easy decision to become an artist." Rosalind gained a degree at Manchester Polytechnic and began work designing greetings cards and giftwrap, then slowly moved into book illustration. Her first book was Fran's Flower which was shortlisted for the Sheffield Book Prize 2000 and she has illustrated many more since then including a story she wrote herself called Grandma's Beach (shortlisted for the Sheffield Prize in 2002). This book was inspired byher childhood holidays spent playing in her grandparents' garden.

Reviews

Recommended Title, Booktrust's Best Book Guide"An excellent preparatory picture book for those ready to make their first trip to the library... McQuinn and Beardshaw radiate enthusiasm for libraries in every bright and energetic page of this book, and expertly defuse a toddler's initial nervousness about a new experience. ; Annie Everall - The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide "A joyful exploration of books, libraries and sharing stories as Lulu and her mum make their regular visit to the library. This should be available in every library and children's centre." ; Books for Keeps No. 164 "The message here is simple, direct, and a vitally important advocacy for libraries, the fun and enjoyment of a visit to the library being conveyed more in the bold, bright pictures painted from Lulu's viewpoint. All young children should have a weekly library experience just like Lulu... It's vital for all children to see characters portrayed who look similar to themselves: that Lulu, the central character in this story is black, is therefore particularly welcome"
