Ore meets Julia Donaldson
Julia Donaldson, the author of the Gruffalo books, is the new children's laureate - an important position awarded to a top writer for kids.
A new laureate's chosen every two years, and previous holders include Michael Morpurgo and Tracy Beaker author Jaqueline Wilson.
When she was given the award, Julia said: "I feel excited and honoured."
She hopes that while she's in the position she'll be able to promote children's books and reading.
Julia's written more than 120 books, including Room on the Broom, Zog and The Snail and the Whale.
The Gruffalo was made into a film in 2009
In 2010, The Gruffalo came top in a survey of the favourite kids' books in the UK.
It was made into a film shown on BBC TV, which was nominated for an Oscar.
She's the seventh children's laureate - taking over from Anthony Browne.
