ABOUT SALLY At a young age, Sally Gardner was branded 'unteachable' and was sent to various schools, until she was eventually diagnosed at the age of twelve as being severely dyslexic. Sally is now an award-winning novellist and avid spokesperson for dyslexia; she sees it as a gift, not a disability, and is passionately trying to change how dyslexics are perceived by society.
Her first full-length novel, I, CORIANDER, won the Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award in 2005. THE RED NECKLACE was shortlisted for the Guardian Book Prize in 2007.
