It’s Cressida

After much speculation – well, in my circles, at least – as to who will be the next children’s laureate, we have the answer. It’s Cressida Cowell, who writes so well about dragons. Lots of young people read and like her books. What more could we want?

Cressida Cowell

For me it will be very practical as well, as I frequently look at a picture of Cressida and think ‘that’s Lauren Child,’ or the other way round. So now that she takes over from Lauren, they will be more closely linked than ever.

And it seems Cressida really is married to Simon Cowell. Only not that Simon Cowell. (When I saw the question online I thought what a silly question, but it seems it was me who was silly.)

Congratulations to Cressida, and may her reign be enjoyable and I hope she will be able to do what she hopes to achieve in her two years.
