Britain's New Children's Laureate

From BBC:

The Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson is Britain's new Children's Laureate, it has been announced.

The 62-year-old writer, who was born in London and lives in Glasgow, said she would "relish" the role and would be an "advocate" for reading.

She takes on the two-year post from outgoing laureate Anthony Browne.

Donaldson has written more than 120 books including The Snail And The Whale, A Squash and a Squeeze and the teenage novel, Running On The Cracks.

Her most famous work, The Gruffalo, tells the story of how a cunning mouse outwits the mythical creature and other predators during a walk in the woods.
