On Friday, we joined a Puffin Virtually Live presentation. We were able to draw along with Adam Hargreaves – son of Roger Hargreaves, who continues his father’s popular Mr. Men and Little Miss series of children’s books, and this year has illustrated the Dr Men Series.
We created comic book characters with Jeff Kinney, author and illustrator of Diary of Wimpy Kid.
We were inspired to create our own superhero by Ali-A, who’s been inspired by his new graphic novel Game On1!, illustrated by Alek Sotirovski.
We heard the author of Wonder, R. J. Palacio, talking about using technology to create illustrations.
One of the best sections was looking at the wonderful illustrations in Malala’s inspiring new picture book, Malala’s Magic Pencil illustrated by Kerascoët. We have read this book in class and we love it.
