I had a GREAT time at St Andrew's Primary School in Weymouth this morning. Working with year one children, we talked monsters, character design and story writing. They had some fab questions too...like "how old are you?" :)
If you know of a school who would like an author/illustrator to visit for a day, a morning, or just an hour then check out the events page on my website
