Year 4 enjoyed a fantastic visit to Wallsend Library on Thursday 16th November to meet with author, Steve Webb and illustrator Chris Mould. We learnt how their books are created; from the initial mad ideas, to drafting, story creating, editing and finally adding artwork. We all enjoyed the funny stories of Spangles McNasty and had our own copies personally signed!


On Friday 17th November, Year 2 attending a similar workshop with the illustrator Nick Sharatt. They learnt how his ideas come to life on the page before getting their books signed with a personalised drawing from Nick himself!
