Kaye Umansky is a very successful, award winning writer for children, with her books ranging from picture books to novels.
Her first novel, Pongwiffy, shot straight onto the bestseller list on publication, and Bloomsbury are reprinting all six titles over the next few months.
Kaye was a music and drama teacher and this background in music gives her writing and, in particular, her dialogue a strong rhythm which makes it ideal for reading aloud. Kaye not only taught music and drama for a number of years, but performed in a soul band with her husband Mo.
Kaye has been chosen to provide a new story to be included in one of the "World Book Day" children's books to be published next spring 2013.
We are extremely lucky to have this wonderful author visiting Oundle, so come along and enjoy!
