Deeply sad to hear of the death of wonderful Wendy Cooling. She was a passionate champion of the transformative magic of reading, and by founding Bookstart she had an impact on millions of children in the U.K. The children’s book world will miss her so much. https://t.co/tccALOL1Mx

Catherine and I were so privileged to work with Wendy Cooling. Always a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm, it’s hard to believe that smile has gone. But what an amazing legacy she leaves.

I remember the talk Wendy Cooling gave at our conference too. She talked about the picture book The Tadpole’s Promise and it’s still one of my absolute favourites. @Booktrust @debbiesims https://t.co/NT6EsjDHdb
