The Readers Speak

Authors write for their readers, and our readers, young and old, are very important to us. While proud that the many awards we receive for our books confirm their literary merit, the good opinion of our readers is of utmost importance to us, and to our authors. So we are happy to receive comments and reviews from young readers who have used our books in school or who have read and enjoyed them at home.

We also welcome comment about our author visits to schools and libraries. Write in and tell us about the preparation for the visit, about the visit itself and about any follow-up work you might have done. Or send us your thoughts on a book or series of O'Brien books that you have enjoyed. These pages will be updated at regular intervals: keep watching for readers' reviews.
