'Funny Prize' Honors Roald Dahl, Humorous Books

The only literature prize Dahl ever won in the U.K. was judged by children. Listen here.

"Much-loved children's author Roald Dahl was snubbed by critics in his day. Now, the United Kingdom's Booktrust has created a prize in his honor that awards children's authors who write funny books.
U.K. Children's Laureate Michael Rosen talks with Liane Hansen about the prize, which he founded."

I love that Michael Rosen, who wrote "Michael Rosen's Sad Book", founded the funny prize. We need us one a them here.
