One Sold Every 11 Seconds

The cover of The Smeds and the Smoos, a book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

I learned today that the prolific children’s author Julia Donaldson sells about one book every 11 seconds in the UK. My favourite book by Donaldson is The Smeds and the Smoos, a story about two aliens who fall in love and have to deal with their families. Axel Scheffler’s art is beautiful and I particularly like the colours.

我今天了解到,多产的儿童作家朱莉娅·唐纳森(Julia Donaldson)在英国每11秒售出一本书。 我最喜欢朱莉娅·唐纳森(Julia Donaldson)撰写的书,是《 The Smeds and Smoos》,讲述了两个坠入爱河并不得不与家人打交道的外星人的故事。 阿克塞尔·谢弗勒(Axel Scheffler)的艺术很美,我特别喜欢两个外星恋人的色彩和角色设计。
