Publishing alongside The Good Thieves is an unmissable and powerful short book for adult readers on the importance of children’s literature.

Why You Should Read Children's Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise has been written for Independent Bookshop Week and explores how children’s books ignite, and can re-ignite, the imagination; how children's fiction, with its unabashed emotion and playfulness, can awaken old hungers and create new perspectives on the world.

Katherine Rundell is the bestselling author of five children's novels for which she has won the Costa Children’s Book Award, the Blue Peter Book Award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize amongst many others. Her novels are now published in 30 territories. Katherine will be visiting Independent Bookshops around the UK during IBW talking about both her new adventure story for children The Good Thieves and Why You Should Read Children's Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise.
