Author Salman Rushdie publishes new children's book

Twenty-one years ago, when author Salman Rushdie was forced into hiding as a result of a fatwa, he turned to writing a book aimed at younger readers which celebrated the joys of free speaking and storytelling.

Now he has written a new book, aimed once more at young people, which is dedicated to his 13-year-old old son Milan.

Rushdie and his son discussed the book on the BBC's Andrew Marr show.
