Join award-winning Belgian picture book writer and illustrator Kitty Crowther for a morning of drawing and storytelling with Sarah Ardizzone, prize-winning translator of Daniel Pennac amongst many others. Kitty has created over 40 books in French, many of which have been translated into other languages, and in 2010 she won the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.

Find out how Kitty creates her books and watch as she draws characters from her books live on stage. With plenty of opportunity for children to ask questions and lots of audience participation, this event is sure to engage and inspire.

“I’ve admired the enchanted world of Kitty Crowther for a long time and I’m happy that English-speaking children can now get to know it as well.”
Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo.
