The exceptional talents behind some of the nation’s best-loved books - from The Gruffalo to The BFG, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt to the Charlie and Lola series - the Children’s Laureates are the perfect ambassadors for children’s literature.
It’s been 20 wonderful years of the Laureateship, and now all 10 former honourees have banded together to celebrate the only way they know how: through stories and poems. Among others, Quentin Blake tells the stories behind his pictures of weird and wonderful beasts, Michael Morpurgo draws on childhood memories for a moving wartime tale and Michael Rosen plays with language and shapes in his witty poems. Each contribution is designed to inspire children to create their own work and is accompanied by a note from the authors - rare insights from the finest talent in the world of children’s books.
Above all else, Flights of Fancy celebrates the Laureateship’s most important achievement: encouraging children to let their imagination soar.
