Laureate launches festival.

SOME of the most popular children's authors in the UK will be booking into Brum as the Young Readers' Festival begins today.

Children's Laureate Michael Rosen will launch the festival with his one-man show.

The poet has written more than 100 books, including We're Going on a Bear Hunt.

Novelist Malorie Blackman will bring the festival - organised by Birmingham City Council - to a close on May 30. She will be introducing Double Cross, the fourth book in her Noughts & Crosses sequence.

Other highlights include a "Book Bash" in Centenary Square for the bank holiday weekend.
