Children's author Michael Rosen has announced the winners of the Laugh Out Loud Awards 2019.

Also known as the Lollies, the award celebrates the funniest children's books and were awarded in three categories.

The winners were selected from a shortlist drawn up by a panel of judges.

Kids across the UK also got to have their say, and voted for the books that have made them giggle the most.

    I don't think you're boasting-it's an easy read. I think it should be in the 6-8 category.

    I don't understand how Tom Gates is in the 9 to 13 category as me and alot of other people in my class could of read it at 7. I don't know if I am boasting and sorry if I am as it is really easy to read
