BiographyEdit

CareerEdit

Barry started his career by marketing children’s books. He travelled the UK with Roald Dahl, among other people, and really learned the difference between what children respond to and really like, and what they’re told to like. Though he spent time promoting books for adults early in my career, he was drawn back to children’s books, and when Bloomsbury asked him to do a report on starting children’s list, he claims to have thought, “I can do this. I’m not a proper editor, but I know a lot about children’s books.”

TriviaEdit

  • Barry Cunningham was also the one to discover J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Coincidentally, Cornelia Funke is nicknamed "Germany's J. K. Rowling".
