Chris Riddell named as the UK Children’s Laureate

What brilliant news! Congratulations Mr Riddell. He is the third illustrator to win the title and follows the children’s writer Malorie Blackman. 

I really can’t wait to see what exciting prospects he will bring forward. It has been reported that he wants to focus on championing creativity and visual literacy as well as promoting libraries. 

I’m really excited for the next two years to see what he delivers. 

My favourite Chris Riddell illustration:
