School and Library Visits

“…it was a brilliant day which the children and adults loved!”

I’m an author, storyteller, illustrator and YouTube creator having written and illustrated over two hundred books that span the ability and interest of primary school children.

I’ve written many series books like The Ginger Ninja    –    Viking Vik    –     Ricky Rocket    –    Axel Storm    –    Olympia 

My more recent trilogy is for upper primary – Dragon Gold – Dragon White & Dragon Red and coming in January – Walker  – The boy who can speak to dogs.

My Youtube channels have gained nearly 300,000 subscribers and 47 million views for my how to draw videos – I love showing children how to draw characters from my books and curiculum themed drawings. Children often want to know about YouTube – so many want to be youtubers too!

I’ve written over two hundred books that span the ability and interest of primary school children and visited hundreds of schools and libraries at home and abroad, building a wealth of experience which I love to share.

Storytelling is my real passion – telling stories and drawing the pictures too – inspiring children to learn to love reading books for pleasure.

My preferred day starts with a 20 minute whole school introduction assembly, followed by three one hour story/illustration workshops. I choose one of my books to suit the children, or a curriculum theme you are working on, talk about the book and its creation and perform it. I show the children how I draw the characters and show them how to draw it too – have pencils and paper ready! (Schools are always amazed by the results of these drawings!)

I have visited a lot of schools, so I have learned to be very adaptable. If you have other ideas or a particular project you would like me to be involved in, please feel free contact me.
