Visit of John Fardell.

9th Feb 2018

Primary4 - 7 pupils enjoyed a talk with John Fardell on Thursday 25th January, 2018.

John is one of Scotland's most established and best-loved children's authors.  His stunning illustrated picture books and illustrated novels are filled with adventure, inventions and hilarious mishaps.

The pupils were transfixed when he shared his creative genius with them, explaining how he writes and illustrates his books.  He took us through the writing of his popular picture book 'The day Louis got eaten'.  We learned how his ideas came together and the process involved.  He showed us the models he made for the inventions in the book.
