INTERVIEW: Guess How Much I Love You author, Sam McBratney

How much do you love your kids? Right up to the moon – and back?

And presumably you won a stack of awards for it?

It never won an award! Almost 30 million copies and it never won an award. It did win an award by American booksellers, but over here, it never won a thing! It didn’t make a blind bit of difference to it.

The book has been a favourite of couples, as well as parents, over the years… 

Yes it has. So many people buy the book, so it has all kinds of readers. All different kinds of people buy it for different reasons. Once you’ve written something and it’s out there, it’s up to people to make of it what they will. It’s no longer my property. 

It’s your most successful book isn’t it?

Almost everything else I’ve written has disappeared without trace.  

Has it become your pension then?

Oh yes. Well it’s a financial success, there’s no hiding that!

Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram is published by Walker Books.
