Down the Rabbit Hole: May 2015


Gorgeous images from Alex T Smith’s Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion

I hurried back from the Hay Festival just in time for May’s DTRH. For this month we were joined by Guardian journalist, author and all-round children’s book guru Lucy Mangan.

Melissa, Louise, Lucy and I discussed three new children’s books: Alex T Smith’s spin on Little Red Riding Hood, Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion, published by Scholastic, which is pictured above (image via Alex T Smith’s very lovely website which I recommend you enjoy browsing); Demolition Dad by Phil Earle published by Orion Children’s Books; and The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

The show also included a short feature item from Bloomsbury, in which blogger Daphne of Winged Reviews interviewed Sarah J Maas about A Court of Thorns and Roses.
