Margaret Wild
Guy Lochhead, 07/09/10
Australian children’s author. Before becoming a professional writer, Wild worked as a journalist and children’s book editor. She has over 40 books to her name. She writes with a great sympathy for the child’s perspective of human experience, in a range of styles, and has won numerous awards. Wild’s books are dated in their approach to writing for children, and her illustrators’ accompanying pictures are almost always pretty ugly. There’s nothing massively exciting in her life story.
