Family Matters: What goes into the writing of children's books

7 July 2015 3:31 PM

We speak to two authors of children's books who are going to tell to us about their latest books and about the process of writing.

Children books form the better part of a child’s development. In this week’s Family Matters we look at what the authors of children's books go through when writing these books and what their books intend to achieve.

CapeTalks Pippa Hudson spoke to Alan Glass, author of Oliver’s Outline and Gary Hirson, author of The Magic That’s Ours.

Olivers Outline is about a little boy with anxiety, because I was a very anxious child. But as an adult you have the ability to recognise what the issues are and deal with them in some way.

Alan Glass, author of Oliver’s Outline

The Magic That’s Ours came out in 2007 and is now just being translated in isiXhosa and IsiZulu. Its about a brother and sister that meets Imagination. He goes on to explain about this gift we all have which is imagination from where the seed of all creativity flourishes

Gary Hirson, author of The Magic That’s Ours.

The book was written for parents that instead of putting their children down in front of the TV they could read them a short section of the book and leave them to do one of the fun time activities

Gary Hirson, author of The Magic That’s Ours.
