On the front of BfK this month is the cover of Yesterday by Adèle Geras. The artwork is by Carolyn Piggford. This book is one from the 'Teenage Memoirs' series published by Walker (see the article, All Their Yesterdays, in this issue) and Adèle, of course, is the subject of our Authorgraph - see centre-spread. Our thanks to Walker Books for their help in using this illustration.
This book is a great read - and royalties will be donated via Readathon to the Malcolm Sargent Cancer Fund for Children. Dick King-Smith, Tony Ross, Helen Cresswell, Joan Aiken, Robert Leeson and five more authors have contributed short stories of wide variety and appeal - among them a dinosaur with rock-star ambitions, blue apple-bearing monster trees, a beautifully written adventure of a raindrop and the tale of 'Orrid John', whom Father Christmas teaches a lesson. Readers of 10+ will enjoy this for themselves and many Junior classes will delight in having the stories read to them.
