Dragon Day with Author Mark Robertson
This week is very exciting indeed. To celebrate World Book Day (on Thursday) we are having a week of exciting events including: three visiting authors, dress as your favourite character day, a creative writing workshop, an illustrating workshop and a 3d model making session.
To start our week we invited Mark (M.P) Robertson who has illustrated over a hundred covers and has provided countless pen and ink illustrations for many titles by distinguished authors, such as Joan Aiken, Robert Bolt, Robert Swindells, Adele Geras and Brian Patten.
The children had a wonderful day celebrating Dragons with Mark. In addition to story telling and an insight into the illustrating process, Mark also ran a workshop on how to draw dragons.
Mark's first picture book was Seven Ways to Catch The Moon. He followed this with The Egg a story about a boy and a foundling dragon. His latest book Frank n Stan is a heart warming retelling of Mary Shelley's gothic classic.
