We Need a National Children's Lit Laureate, Too!

So the UK has one, and now the US has one -- I think it's high time Canada had a national laureate for children's literature, too. Jon Scieszka has just been named the national ambassador for children's literature in the US. Here's a letter from Michael Rosen, the UK's laureate, to Jon. And here's an interview with Jon from Bookslut.

So, if Canada had a laureate for children's literature, who might it be?
