So here’s a question: why is the book about a sad girl in Amsterdam nagging at me so much harder than the Om Shanti, Babe follow up book, Karma Cookies, for which the Arts Council have given me a generous award? Am I just looking for an excuse to go back to the best-ever-library, or is it just time for me to write a sadder book? Sorry, that was two questions….


About Helen Limon

I'm a writer and I also do research on children books - I am particularly interested in how women and girls are portrayed in picture books and I get quite (very) cross about books that only show boys being scientists and engineers, and doctors. When I get cross I tend to write emails to publishers signed Dr Limon. Everyone else calls me Helen.
