A Apple Pie and Traditional Little Red Riding Hood and Evans Author Nesbit Author Aladdin and Other Tales from Heath Robinson Author About the Author Gillian Avery was born in Reigate, Surrey, where she started her writing career as a journalist on the Surrey Mirror. Deciding that the pace of book publishing was more congenial than that of newspapers, she went to Oxford in to work for the Clarendon Press.
In she married a don, Anthony Cockshut, and when they moved to Manchester she was so homesick for Oxford that she set her first novel, The Warden's Niece , in an Oxford college in Victorian times, feeling an affinity between her own pre-war generation and the Victorian child, characterized by a 'meek acceptance of the power of the adult world'. Returning to Oxford in , she continued to write novels, including A Likely Lad , set in Manchester, which won the Guardian award for children's fiction in and was successfully dramatized as a children's TV serial.
Gillian Avery is also well known as a reviewer and historian of children's literature. Show More.
