A colourful treat for you this week, on the back of British author Lauren Child’s visit to Australia (Valerie interviewed her for episode 176 of the podcast – you can hear that here).
As an author and illustrator, Lauren is the creator of many famous characters including Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean, and Ruby Redfort. She has sold over 3 million books in 19 languages worldwide and has also won squillions of awards too.
The Ruby Redfort series has been following undercover agent and mystery solver Ruby Redfort across six adventures since 2011. Ruby is a genius code-cracker, a daring detective, and a gadget-laden special agent who just happens to be a 13-year-old girl. She and her slick side-kick butler, Hitch, foil crimes and get into loads of scrapes with evil villains, but they’re always ice-cool in a crisis.
The books are ideal for readers aged 10-14 and this week we’re excited to have the full collection up for grabs. That’s right, SIX books to one lucky reader!
To be in to win, tell us (in under 25 words) who YOUR crime fighting sidekick would be and why! Our favourite and our best (as Lola would say) will win the set!
