Chris Riddell Virtual Author Event

24 September 2020

This week, we were fortunate enough to have another virtual author visit. Our Years 2-5 boys were mesmerised by the quiet genius of author and illustrator, Chris Riddell.  There were a few technical hitches – we are all learning new ways of doing things – but once Chris started to draw and talk, the boys quickly fell under his spell as he drew his way through his time with us. He read the boys a sneak preview of his latest book ‘Guardians of Magic’ and many were lucky enough to receive signed copies. One of our Year 4 Boys was also the recipient of one of Chris’ special illustrations from the visit!
