I know we have several children's librarians here, and many many parents, and people who were once young, and who love children's and YA literature so I thought I would share this here.
Margaret Mahy was a nationally celebrated author in NZ, and I know she was published around the world as well. I think everyone who went to primary school in the 80s and 90s has their own story of when she came to their school - more than her wig, I remember that she had big coat on.
She is being widely mourned here, and I think this blog post is such a lovely example of why.
