WHEN I was a child growing up in the 70s and 80s in Segamat and Batu Pahat, Johore, I often received books as gifts. Many of them were Puffins, but I don’t think the publisher’s name was something I was really conscious of then. What I did notice, after a while, was the name Kaye Webb. It appeared on the synopsis page, above the book’s title – Editor: Kaye Webb.
I didn’t then know what an editor was or did, but I supposed she must be quite important to have her name appear even before the author’s own. Somehow, I decided that Kaye Webb was the name that guaranteed a good read – not Puffin Books, but Kaye Webb.
