Alan Garner Book and Novel

Alan Garner - Author


Alan Garner was born in Congleton in Cheshire in October 1934. He was brought up on Alderley and lives with his wife and family, between Congleton and Alderley. Alan Garner's writing was Highly Recommended for the only international children's book award, The Hans Christian Andersen Medal, in 1978. He was also awarded the twelfth annual Children's Literature Association International Phoenix Award for his novel The Stone Book and by extension, of course, for the entire Stone Book Quartet. In 2001, Alan was awarded an OBE for his services to Children's Literature, despite admitting that he doesn't write for children - they just understand his books best.
