Michael Rosen

(*1946) is an English children’s novelist and poet, the author of 140 books. Michael Rosen writes ‘stuff’. He doesn’t mind whether it’s called poetry or not, but he likes writing that sort of thing and children like reading it. Most of his adult life, he has been a freelance writer, teacher (of sorts), journalist, performer and broadcaster. www.michaelrosen.co.uk
