Writing effectively for children and young people places unique demands on theauthor.

Quite the opposite - as theyrequire an even greater focus and clearer sense of direction than when writing foradults.Many people continue to enjoy their childhood favourites throughout their lives. According to his biographer, Cole Lesley, when Noel Coward died a copy of hislifelong favourite,
The Enchanted Castle,
was found by his bedside. A quick poll around the Launch Point office revealed the enduring popularity of thefollowing books:
The Wind in the Willows - 
Kenneth Grahame;
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - 
Roald Dahl;
