October Children's book of the month is Operation Bunny and author Sally Gardner is joining us for a webchat on Friday 12 October at 1pm. As well as discussing her books, she will also be talking about her experiences of being severely dyslexic; from being expelled from school at 14 to becoming a hugely successful children's author and illustrator.

October 8-12 is National Dyslexia Awareness Week and Sally's story is one of triumph over adversity - a beacon of hope to dyslexic children everywhere. Sally now works with Dyslexia organisations, and talks to children up and down the country about seeing dyslexia as a gift, not a curse. Sally's recently been nominated for Dyslexia Action's IT'S ME! Award 2012, which celebrates those in the public eye who encourage others not to let their dyslexia hold them back.
