As well as being a writer, Carole is a keen reader with a particular interest in children’s books. One of the specialisations in her Master of Writing and Literature was children’s literature, and in particular, the picture book.
When it comes to writing a review, with her knowledge of theory, and being a writer for children herself, Carole is switched on to the many nuances of this crucial area of literature. Whether it’s delving into how an author deals with the storyline, the characters, the point of view – or how the ideology behind a text is likely to impact the child reader – Carole has the keen eye of a competent reviewer.
Carole has been a regular reviewer for Magpies and runs her own review blog, Ruby Rainbow Reviews.
