The legendary author, poet and broadcaster Michael Rosen, author of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and more than two hundred books for children returns to Barnes by huge demand.

When he was seventeen Michael Rosen thought he might quite like to be a doctor but after a year of training he decided that he would prefer to study English. After university he joined the BBC as a trainee working on children’s programmes like Play School and Jackanory, before he published his first book of poetry, Mind Your Own Business, which was illustrated by Quentin Blake. He is probably best known for his poems, and for his bedtime classic We’re Going On A Bear Hunt which this year celebrates the 30th anniversary of publication, as well as over 140 books for children and adults on a variety of subjects from Shakespeare to Roald Dahl. He’s also the host of BBC Radio 4’s Word of Mouth show. His favourite children’s book is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
