François Rabelais: „Kinder sind keine Fässer, die gefüllt, sondern Feuer, die entfacht werden wollen“
Sally Gardner, who is severely dyslexic and only learnt to read at the age of fourteen, has won this year’s Nestle Children’s Book Prize for her book
I, Coriander. Her fantasy tale of murder, magic and romance set in 17th century London, captivated the 2005 judges and won a gold medal for the best book in the nine to eleven years category.
The award was made today, December 14th, at the British Library, London, in front of an invited audience of some of the 4,500 schoolchildren who were this year’s judges.
