When the Authors of Adult Books Write for Children


Many authors, well known for writing serious literature for adults, have turned their attention to younger readers and written for children. Aldous Huxley went into a brave new world of crows and Ian Fleming shelved 007 to invent a magical car. With the experience, insight and sophistication of excellent writing at their fingertips, these authors have produced some stunning works intended for kids.

See children’s books from Gertrude Stein, James Baldwin and many others.
