Meet the My Book Corner Team

With so many good children's' books to choose from, it always helps to get a trusted recommendation, that’s precisely what My Book Corner is here for.


My Book Corner consists of 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. My Book Corner has been around since 2011 and plan to be here for many more years to come.
