Brian Jacques

Yesterday Brian Jacques was formally awarded an Honorary Fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University for his contributions to children's literature!

Last year, Brian was voted one of the top 10 Merseysiders and received a portrait by artist Micheline Robinson, and in 2005 he received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Liverpool.

According to the Liverpool Daily Post, Jacques said:

"It’s nice to be honoured by my own city. I’m a son of Liverpool and it’s still my home town, I love living here and swimming in Everton every morning.
"I’m happiest when I’m reading to children and I often visit Liverpool schools. I communicate well with kids and I never speak down to them.”

Congratulations again Brian!
