Gili Bar-Hillel, Reviewer, was editor of children's books for the Israeli publishing house Keter, worked for the major Israeli newspaper "Ha'aretz", directed some plays, produced radio programs and did several other things with her life before translating the "Harry Potter" books into Hebrew, but nobody really cares about that since Harry came along. She has also translated books by Jacqueline Wilson, Diana Wynne Jones and Noel Streatfield, and adapted an annotated edition of "The Wizard of Oz" for Hebrew readers. She is a longstanding member of the International Wizard of Oz Club, and lives in Tel-Aviv with her husband and two children. In between translating and parenting, she writes reviews of picture books for the Israeli weekly "La'Isha", and maintains a blog in the Hebrew language. And yet there seems to be time to read books as well.
