Author of over 150 books, including the ever-adored The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson is also an MBE, playwright and performer, as well as the UK’s 2011-2013 Children’s Laureate. Best known for her popular rhyming stories for children, including Room on the Broom, Stick Man and Zog, Julia has worked with many different illustrators, including the wonderful Axel Scheffler, who illustrated The Gruffalo.

At the London Book Fair,
Julia Donaldson presented
The Laureate’s Choice: a selection of 10 picture books for children that she believes demonstrate the hallmarks
of a great picture book.

We also filmed Julia Donaldson’s presentation of each selected title at the London Book Fair. To watch, simply click on each of the red highlighted book titles in the right-hand column.

We have all 10 of these titles ready and waiting for one MyLittleStyleFiler to add to their child’s library. To enter the competition, just add one of these books to a MyLittleStyleFile birthday or Christmas Moodboard and set your Moodboard to Public view. Share the Moodboard with family and friends and ask them to ‘like’ your Moodboard. The creator of the Moodboard with the most likes by midnight (GMT) on August 8, 2014 will receive all ten titles. Competition terms and conditions available here.
