4JB's choice as the next Children's Laureate

Today we talked about who we would like to take over from Malorie Blackman when she leaves her post as Children's Laureate in June. There were lots of great authors and poets nominated,so we decided to have a class vote. Here are our results:

Philip Pullman 7
Francesca Simon 4
Darren Shan 3
Jonathan Meres 10
David Walliams 6
Helena Pielichaty 4
Cressida Cowell 5
Liz Pichon 5
Neil Gaiman 11
Jackie Morris 5
Brian Moses 5

Other suggestions
CS Lewis
Eva Ibbotson
Enid Blyton

In the end, Neil Gaiman won by just one vote. Do you agree with our choice?
