Children's laureates choose their classics (UK)

Michael Rosen"Just William, Stuart Little and Mary Poppins have beaten Harry Potter in being named the greatest children's books of all time. The boy wizard was not chosen for the Laureates' Table, a new promotion at Waterstone's that is part of the 10th anniversary of the Children's Laureate. Children's laureates Quentin Blake, Anne Fine, Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen (pictured) each selected seven books but have favoured the classics over the modern era. Only five of the 35 books selected were published during the last 20 years." - The Bookseller
