We are very sad to have to share the news that one of the stars of children’s literature, Eva Ibbotson, died at her home in England on October 20. She was 85.
Ibbotson was the author of more than 20 beloved novels for children and adults, including The Beasts of Clawstone Castle, The Star of Kazan, The Dragonfly Pool, A Company of Swans, A Countess Below Stairs, and Journey to the River Sea published by Recorded Books. Her most recent title, The Ogre of Oglefort, has just been published in England and will come out in the US in summer 2011.
