We've had a truly magical start to our 2016 Book Week! Neal Layton author and illustrator kept pupils spellbound with his sketches and stories.
He explained how he comes up with ideas and that it took an astounding four years to illustrate, write, and research The Story of Stars, his latest children's book. He showed in detail how his characters Arabella and Oscar and Mammoth Academy came into being.
Pupils were full of questions and Neal took the time to answer them all.
