    World Book Day and human rights for animals

    This week, the Week Junior Team are talking about World Book Day, jellyfish mucus, and an inspirational scientist. Plus, they're asking whether apes should have human rights. 

    PLUS: Have you ever wanted to interview a poet, writer and former children’s laureate? Now’s your chance. We're interviewing Michael Rosen, who has written many novels and poetry books, and we want your questions. They can be about anything: where he gets his ideas from, his favourite poems, or even what he has for breakfast.

    Grab a grown-up and record yourself asking one, or more questions, and send it to hello@theweekjunior.co.uk. We will ask Michael a selection of your questions, and you can hear them in a future podcast coming soon. For us to be able to use your questions, we need to have received them by 3rd March at the latest, so make sure you don’t miss out – send them over today!
