In conversation with Lauren Child, Children's Laureate



Children’s Laureate Lauren Child, MBE explores the magic of reading and writing with some of her best-loved characters including Clarice Bean, Ruby Redfort, and Charlie and Lola.

Child is one of today’s most highly regarded writers and illustrators for children and young teenagers. Her Charlie and Lola series for 2-5-year-olds was made into a BAFTA award-winning television show, while her Clarice Bean and Ruby Redfort detective novels sparked the imagination of young teenagers. Appointed Children’s Laureate in 2017, she says her mission is to get children excited about reading.
