Michael Rosen

Michael Rosen grew up in the London suburb of Pinner. His parents were teachers, politically committed (socialists), and great storytellers and readers. I was lucky to have found them.

Michael is a writer, teacher (of sorts), journalist, performer and broadcaster. He also visits lots of schools doing my one-man show, and support Arsenal Football Club.

He is best known for classic books like We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, and was Children’s Laureate from 2007-2009.
