Celebrating the Children's Laureate

Celebrations have begun to mark 20 years of the Children's Laureate.

The role was created by Ted Hughes and Michael Morpurgo, and is awarded once every two years - to a writer or illustrator - with the likes of Quentin Blake and Jacqueline Wilson among the 10 recipients in its history.

Some of those who've held the title gathered in London this week to acknowledge the milestone.
