Summary

Stories and artwork from the first ten Children's Laureates, with suggestions for creative projects.

The exceptional talents behind some of the nation's best-loved books - from The Gruffalo to The BFG, We're Going on a Bear Hunt to the Charlie and Lola series - the children's Laureates are the perfect ambassadors for children's literature.

This anthology marks twenty years of the Laureateship, with stories, poems and pictures by all ten former honourees. Among others, Quentin Blake tells the stories behind his pictures, Michael Morpurgo draws on childhood memories and Michael Rosen plays with language and shapes in his witty, read-aloud poems.

NOTE: £1 from every copy sold goes to Booktrust.
