Jane Sullivan, author of Storytime, joins Mel Cranenburgh to discuss her latest book where she takes readers from Wonderland to Narnia; is enchanted by Winnie-the-Pooh and the Magic Pudding, amazed by Enid Blyton and frightened by the Tales of Terror. And then there are those stories made tricky by often posthumous revelations about the author’s lives….

Mel is then joined by Associate Professor Leonie Rutherford to discuss how digital platforms might inspire a new generation of young readers who aren’t getting what they want from the printed word.
