His bestselling books include We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen's Sad Book and Quick Let's Get Out of Here. His books for adults include Good Ideas, how to be your child's and your own best teacher and his memoir, So They Call You Pisher!. He was Children's Laureate from 2007-2009, and received the Eleanor Farjeon Award for services to children's literature in 1997.

Michael Rosen's Book of Play is published in association with Wellcome Collection, a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we think and feel about health. Inspired by the medical objects and curiosities collected by Henry Wellcome, it connects science, medicine, life and art. Wellcome Collection exhibitions, events and books explore a diverse range of subjects, including consciousness, forensic medicine, emotions, sexology, identity and death.
