New Children's Laureate - Cressida Cowell
One of my all time favourite authors has become the new Children's Laureate. What more reason do we need than this to break out the How to Train Your Drain books out (and read them in order), find a cosy corner in garden and have a good reading sessions all summer long?
The post of Children's Laureate was originally given to one of our favourite illustrator and writer Quentin Blake in 1999. There have been 10 Children Laureates since then, and now Cressida is the 11th.
