Lauren Child has been appointed the tenth Children's Laureate, and will stay in the job until 2019.
Dame Jacqueline Wilson took on the role in 2005, while Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson was laureate between 2011-2013.
Lauren was presented with her medal at a special ceremony in Hull.
Jenny asked some of the children there if they were pleased she had been chosen as the new laureate.
