And the new children’s laureate is…

Children's Laureate 2009-2011

… Anthony Browne! Personally I think this is a great, great choice! Hurrah! Anthony has got pretty big shoes to fill following Michael Rosen who also had big shoes to fill himself following on from all the previous Laureates in the post. It feels like with each new person taking up this role, the status of the Laureateship and children’s books just grows and grows. Fantastic stuff!

Anthony’s agenda as next Childrens Laureate is to  stimulate and encourage a lifelong love of reading.

I’m sure that there will be lots more information over on the Booktrust and Children’s Laureate websites soon. I’ll be blogging about it too for Booktime so do drop over there at somepoint today too.

So, what do you all think of the 2009-2011 choice?
