Taking over from Chris Riddell. Thoughts?

I thought she'd already done it.
Regardless she is of course a brilliant children's author and illustrator.

About friggin' time! She's such a fab author and I loved her work myself when growing up - and I'm 25 now, can't wait to introduce my kids to her. Just seen as well that mumsnet are giving away some of her stuff on instagram, I wonder if they already knew about this.

Great news. Saw an exhibition of her work (pictures) at Lyme Park last year. She is incredibly talented and her storytelling is amazing too.

We loved her books when the DC were younger, she's a good choice.

Did they have tomato sandwiches at the celebration? misses point of the thread

Brilliant - my 9yo is currently devouring the Ruby Redford books! My DD's have loved Lauren Child at every age.
