Take a good look at the latest children’s books, 

particularly those which are recommended

for use within the National Curriculum.

You will find that they deal with a staggering variety  

topics, ranging from serious lifestyle

issues to fantasy adventures.  


  When writing for very young children, you need 

touse simple, basic concepts and familiar situations.

As their social skills develop, humour plays a much 

larger part and includes slapstick,

puns, one-line jokes and wisecracking characters.

Once the child approaches teenage, the range of 

topics matches that of adult material, the

main difference being the fast-paced style, 

vocabulary and attitude.


The teenage novel is a rapidly expanding market for 

authors who

have the ability to identify with this difficult stage of a 

child’s development.
