Shirley Hughes talks about her new picture book
"...the importance of picture books is that they give them (children who can't yet read) the chance to go through a story, to look-respond visually at their own pace long before they can read, and if they get that, you've got them. I reckon they'll turn into readers." (Shirley Hughes)
'The Christmas Eve Ghost' by Shirley Hughes will be available September 2010.
