Louise Rennison Books & Biography
<b>Louise Rennison</b> was a journalist, comedian and beloved author. In 1999, she introduced Georgia Nicolson to the world with <i>ANGUS THONGS & FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING</i> – the first in a 10-book series. The book won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Bronze Award and was adapted for film in 2008. In the same year, Louise was crowned Queen of Teen for the series, and in 2010, was awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for <i>WITHERING TIGHTS</i> – the first in a spin-off following the hysterical misadventures of Georgia’s cousin, Tallulah.
Sadly, Louise passed away in 2016 at 64-years-young. She left behind a legion of adoring readers who hold Georgia and the Ace Gang close to their hearts. Her books have been translated into 37 languages and have sold more than 2.6 million copies in the UK. Louise lives on through her cherished character Georgia – who was based on her own teen experiences. In Louise’s and Georgia’s own words: “<b>He who laughs last, laughs the laughiest.</b>”
