30th October Morris Lurie (1938)
Morris Lurie is an Australian author and while quite prolific, he is not chiefly known as a children's writer. He is however the author of the novel that I most enjoy serialising for children. I have never met a child who has not been left hanging at the end of a chapter, dying for more. Every young child laughs at, empathises with and relates to its hero, Edward. The book, you must read The Twenty-Seventh Annual African Hippopotamus Race. Gosh!
