Illustrator Visit

Steven Lenton

Our Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes had a very exciting Friday afternoon. The wonderful illustrator, Steven Lenton came to visit. 

Steven read extracts of his new books, 'One Hundred and One Dalmatians' adapted by Peter Bently and the latest in the Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam series 'Jingle Bells' by Tracey Corderoy.
Then the children were treated to a-draw-along-Lenton! .

 Steven shared with the children how to draw his book character, Slippery Sam, and the children drew their own. Ali in Amber Class did a fantastic drawing where by Slippery Sam's hands look like they are actually moving.

It was lots of fun!

Afterwards there was a chance for the children to purchase Steven's books and have them personally signed.

Many thanks to Steven Lenton and the Pickled Pepper Books.
