Meet the My Book Corner Team



Each year the children’s book industry goes from strength to strength as tens of thousands of new books hit the shelves. With so many good books to choose from, it always helps to get a trusted recommendation. That’s precisely what we’re here for.


We’re a team of published authors, budding authors, TV script writers, teachers, journalists and all-round book enthusiasts offering you a carefully curated list of books that we love, and more often than not, absolutely adore. Books to make you laugh, cry, cringe and shriek. Books that fire the imagination and will ultimately shape the childhood of generations of children to come. We’ve been around since 2010 and plan to be here for many more years to come.

Come and meet us, by clicking on the pictures below.
