About the author:
Lyn Wendon, the creator of Letterland, was born in her grandmother’s international school in Florence, Italy. Lyn grew up in the USA and went to school in Canaan and Greenwich, Connecticut. She later gained a BA from Wellesley College. She moved to the UK in 1955 and Lyn received a diploma in Experimental Educational Psychology at the Cambridge Institute of Education. She then worked in primary schools and various independent schools as a peripatetic special needs teacher, combining that with raising three small children and inventing the phonics system that grew into Letterland. Some 40 years after the creation of the original Letterland characters, Lyn is a consultant to the business and plays an active part in making Letterland the worldwide success it is today.
