Congratulations to Michael Morpurgo who won this years Red House Book Award.
I was lucky enough to be invited (never miss a nice lunch) to enjoy the whole ceremony (which I did a lot.)
It's the only award voted for by children and is run by the Federation Of Children's books who do a fantastic job every year.
Here's a few pics from a fabulous day. Off to Glasgow book festival tomorrow.
