Review quote

Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language Guardian One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land The Times I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all! Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009show more

About Michael Rosen

Michael Rosen is one of the best known figures, not only in the children's book world but also the British arts scene. His first book of children's poems was published in 1974, and he has gone on to write numerous and award-winning children's poetry books, picture books and non-fiction such as Quick, Let's get Out of Here and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Alongside this he performs, teaches, lectures, presents Word of Mouth on Radio 4 and reviews books for the Guardian. In 2007, Michael was appointed the fifth Children's Laureate - a role which he says will be used to be an "ambassador of fun".show more
