Michael was Chil­dren’s Lau­re­ate from 2007 to 2009, and one of his proud­est achieve­ments was in­vent­ing the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. He said: “I felt it was im­por­tant to say that some books are bril­liant, not be­cause they deal with is­sues, but be­cause they are funny. Chil­dren love Roald Dahl as his books feel like some­one is on their side, and they are laugh­ing to­gether. The best way to get chil­dren to read and write, is for them to en­joy read­ing.”
