How to make children’s books – live chat with Vivian French

If you want to know how to write and illustrate children’s books, ask an expert – and Viv French is certainly the right person to ask!

She has written over 300 titles and is a best selling children’s author worldwide, as well as teaching the art of illustrating picture books at the Edinburgh College of Art.

In this live interview we chat about illustration and Viv, as a master storyteller, with many tales to tell, imparts tons of wisdom and advice.

See you next week at 4:00 pm Uk time. We go an hour forward this weekend so check the time.
