This month we have award-winning author Jackie French, author of 'A Day to Remember' and 200 other books. Jackie French was the 2014-2015 Australian Children' Laureate and 2015 Senior Australian of the Year. Some of Jackie’s books have sold millions of copies and won over 60 awards in Australia and internationally.
'A Day to Remember' is not the only children's war book Jackie
has written. She has also written the Hitler trilogy: Hitler's Daughter, Pennies for Hitler, and the latest book, 'Goodbye, Mr Hitler'. Jackie said on her Facebook page:
'Goodbye, Mr Hitler' is out in the world. This is the hardest book I have ever written and, possibly, the best. And to the thousands who have written asking questions about both the earlier books: this book will answer them and I hope give far more.
