Former children’s laureate Michael Rosen is “very poorly” after spending a night in intensive care, according to his family.

The statement posted on his Twitter page said he was “stable” and “alert” having been moved to a ward on Sunday.

Rosen, 73, who is Jewish, is known for works including We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, Little Rabbit Foo Foo and Chocolate Cake, and was children’s laureate between 2007 and 2009.

It is not clear whether his condition is related to coronavirus.

The statement said: “Michael is very poorly at the moment. Having spent a night in ICU, he is now doing “ok, stable, alert” and was able to go to a ward yesterday.”

Rosen’s family thanked his Twitter followers “for all their kind concern”.
