Children’s Laureate

Julia Donaldson has recently been awarded the role of Children’s Laureate.

This award is given once every two years to an eminent writer or illustrator of children’s books to celebrate outstanding achievement in their field.

She has a partnership with artist Axel Scheffler and  they have become picture book superstars with titles including

The Gruffalo (which has sold nearly two million copies worldwide aSnail and the Whalend been translated into thirty languages),

The Gruffalo’s Child, and my favourite The Snail and the Whale.

Have a look at the official Gruffalo website.
