This report heralds the official end of the term of our fifth Laureate, Morris Gleitzman, but as we say, â€˜once a Laureate, always a Laureateâ€™; and what a superb Laureate he has been. For the past two years Morris has criss-crossed the country and the globe, reaching a huge number of children at schools, events, festivals and through the media, ensuring that the message about the power of reading and storytelling gets to as many ears as possible. Morrisâ€™s project, Stories Make Us, encouraged young people to explore the ways in which stories shape our lives and it provided a wonderful springboard for each month of Morrisâ€™s term. While we are sad to see Morris go we know he will continue to fly the Laureate flag into the future.
