Lauren in black closeup 884852

Lauren Child burst on to the children’s books scene in 1999 and has since published many bestselling and award-winning books, including those featuring the hugely popular Charlie and Lola, and the Clarice Bean series. Lauren was born in 1967, and grew up in Marlborough, Wiltshire. After studying Art at Manchester Polytechnic and London Art School, she worked in a variety of jobs, including assistant to Damien Hirst. She also started her own company, ‘Chandeliers for the People’, making exotic lampshades.

Her first children’s book Clarice Bean, That’s Me won a Bronze medal at the Nestle Smarties Book Awards. In 2000, she won the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal for I Will Not Ever, Never Eat a Tomato followed by a second Nestlé Smarties Book Prize in 2002 for That Pesky Rat. Clarice Bean became the star of Lauren’s first novel Utterly Me, Clarice Bean in 2002, and went on to appear in two more novels. A television series based on her Charlie and Lola books has also become a huge hit for CBBC.

Lauren Child first introduced the character of Ruby Redfort in her three award-winning, bestselling Clarice Bean novels. Since then she has been inundated with letters from fans asking for the Ruby Redfort books. And it must have worked, because the first two in the series, Ruby Redfort: Look Into My Eyes and Ruby Redfort: Take Your Last Breath have already been published to great critical and commercial success.

Lauren Child’s illustrations contain many different mediums including magazine cuttings, collage, material and photography as well as traditional watercolours. Lauren lives in London, where she works for the Design Agency ‘Big Fish’. In 2008 she was announced as UNESCO’s Artist for Peace and in 2010 she was awarded an MBE for services to literature.

    I loved this book and have read the ones before. I was recommended it when I was 9. Although I was 9, I am a advanced reader and im now 10 and read teenage books so this book slotted in well.

    I liked Ruby who is a secret agent, and some of it was very funny. I found it hard to put the book away once i had started reading.

    I absolutely loved Ruby Redfort Take Your Last Breath. I’ve already read and reviewed the first Ruby Redfort Book, and this one was equaly as good, if not better. It has a brilliant plot and characters and has humour incorporated into the whole storyline. My favourite character is Clancy, as he sometimes reminds me of myself. Overall, I though this book was absolutely brilliant and hope that she writes another book in this collection, which is worthy of 5*.
