Lauren Child On the morning of her 30th birthday, Lauren Child woke up in her best friend's bed, which she was sharing for want of one of her own, and decided things had to change. After a fitful, frustrating university career (a "disastrous" year studying art at Manchester; a disappointing mixed media course at City and Guilds) she spent her 20s "floundering dreadfully", living hand-to-mouth in London "doing the odd mural, painting china and selling it. I felt," she says, "very lost." As a teenager, she'd "always imagined by the time I was 30 I'd have a fantastic career, a house, a husband – that sports-car image of your life. But that morning I was faced with the horrible reality. I thought, look at me! It was deeply depressing, but it woke me up. I realised I had to pull it together." Lauren Child or Helen Child (born 1965)is an English writer and illustrator. She is best known for the Charlie and Lola picture books and the Clarice Bean series of picture books and novels. Influences: E. H. Shepherd, Quentin Blake, Carl Larsson, Ludwig Bemelmans. Child introduced Charlie and Lola in 2000 with I will not ever Never eat a tomato and won the annual Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association for the year's most "distinguished illustration in a book for children".

Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back. Reviews 'Humans do cause wars and chaos but the book shows that a society where no one feels anything is not the right solution to the problems we face in our world today' The Guardian “Winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, this thoughtprovoking novel centers on a 12-year-old boy's gradual disillusionment with an outwardly utopian futuristic society; in a starred review, PW said, "Lowry is once again in top form... unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers." Publishers Weekly "A powerful and provacative novel.” -New York Times
