Great Children's Authors from England

As many of you know, I write a lot on Squidoo, and one of my fellow lensmasters, Poddys, wrote a lens about a famous author from England, Enid Blyton.  The lens was honored today with a designation on Squidoo called Lens of the Day.  This got me to thinking about what other british authors do I know of and don't know they are from England.

After a little research, I was able to find out some of my favorite children's authors are from England.  Roald Dahl who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Chronicles of Narnia author C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, Paddington Bear creator Michael Bond, and one of my favorite children's Christmas Books, the Christmas Bear, was written and illustrated by Henrietta and Paul Stickland.

I'm sure there are more, but for now, I am going down memory lane with some of the books and authors on this list, which takes me to the time I spent in London.  I loved reading the Paddington Bear books.
