The Fairytale Hairdresser and Aladdin

“As a slew of children’s books promoting empathy hit bookshelves, some kids’ authors say they feel a growing responsibility to counteract the UK’s ‘intolerant’ political climate.”

Abie Longstaff was quoted in The Bookseller magazine today. She said:

“As picture book writers, we have access to children right at that start of their reading life. That gives us a chance (and to some extent a responsibility) to represent a context of diversity, empathy, ethics and kindness.”

Abie’s most recent picture book, The Fairytale Hairdresser and Aladdinwas published on 9th March. Buy your copy here.
