Sally Rippin is the author of over 50 books for young readers, including the popular children’s series Billie B Brown (over 3 million copies sold) and Hey Jack! (over 1 million copies sold). However, the Polly and Buster series is close to her heart, and a story she has wanted to write for many years.
‘My hope is that my readers will see themselves in Polly and Buster,’ says Rippin. ‘I want them to understand that no matter how confusing or frightening the world may seem at times, and despite all the crazy, bad things that grown-ups seem to do all around them – kindness and integrity always win out in the end.’
Five years in the making, Polly and Buster has the immediate sense of a modern classic series. It’s the first series to be written AND illustrated by Sally. Perfect for children aged six and up, the series is about empathy, understanding and love. The second book The Mystery of the Magic Stones has just been released and is already a firm favourite among our younger reader audience.
