Michael Rosen

Michael Rosen
Born on May 7, 1946 in London, England, Rosen later attended medical school but dropped out to earn a degree in English at Oxford University.  After working for BBC a short time, Rosen decided to be a freelance writer.  Having held various jobs, including broadcaster, lecturer, and performer, Rosen also wrote poetry for children.  His first book called Mind Your Own Business established Rosen as a children's poet, and then he toured schools to encourage students to read poetry.  Rosen continued his own education, earning a M.A. in children's literature from Reading University and a Ph.D. from the University of North London.  For British radio Rosen does documentary work and is a presenter of BBC Radio 4's Word of Mouth show.  This author has penned 140 books and is currently the fifth appointed Children's Laureate, a position he will hold until 2009.
