Allan Ahlberg is also a supporter of West Bromwich Albion FC, as stated in Adrian Chiles's book, We Don't Know What We're Doing. Hence me adding it in without citing a source ThePennyDrops —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:58, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
I think you can just cite the Adrian Chiles book. Rachel Pearce (talk) 14:01, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
Done with data from Adrian Chiles. What more does Chiles say about A. Ahlberg? --P64 (talk) 21:47, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
Marantz, Sylvia and Kenneth. Artists of the page: interviews with children's book illustrators (Jefferson NC: McFarland, 1992) —255pp; isbn 0899507018 lib; OCLC 24846232; about 30 illustrators
This book is adequately cited in the wikibiography of only one illustrator (Deborah Niland, trivial in-line reference, probably used more substantially). My public library holds a copy, library use only, and I now hope to read it this month. Elsewhere we cite a later book by Marantz & Marantz and McFarland:
Marantz, Kenneth; Marantz, Sylvia. Creating Picturebooks: Interviews with Editors, Art Directors, Reviewers, Booksellers, Professors, Librarians and Showcasers. McFarland & Company: 2006. ISBN 0-7864-2734-5
My regional public library network holds three other books about children's picture books by Sylvia Marantz or both (Search: Sylvia Marantz).
Although J. and A. Ahlberg are both "undifferentiated" from other people with the same names it appears that the German national library records do cover their works including several German translations.
(10/07/14 - 07/10/14) I have added Allan Ahlberg's decline of the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award including a (brief) quote from the The Bookseller "Blog letter" in which he stated his reasons for doing so. I have referenced both The Bookseller blog letter itself and the story as told by The Bookseller - both from thebookseller.com . Robin J Thomson (talk) 19:17, 10 July 2014 (UTC) Robin J Thomson .
This was inserted into my article edit after "...the award's principle sponsor..." - "Amazon.com who doesn't pay fair taxes in the UK."
Was it really necessary to insert this contentious statement ? --Robin J Thomson (talk) 20:00, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
I have removed "...who doesn't pay fair taxes in the UK..." on the principle that Ahlberg's reasons were given in the external links cited and that people can read the wiki linked Amazon.com page and make up thier own minds about Amazon.com's tax controversies Robin J Thomson (talk) 12:33, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Does anyone have any thoughts on splitting this into two separate articles; perhaps keeping a short third article at this address by way of disambiguation? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:03, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
