We support Malorie Blackman

We support Malorie Blackman's call for more diversity in children's books. We deplore the fact that some news outlets distorted what she said and went further and claimed that she said things which she did not say. At a time when children's books receive very little support from the main news outlets, we find it ironic that the only matter that makes the news is a distorted news report giving false information of what our Children's Laureate actually said. We offer full support to Malorie Blackman and wish to affirm our belief that she has been a magnificent Laureate and continues to be a great champion for children's literature.
