I think I may have been a little over-excited yesterday meeting Axel Scheffler, but I’ve been reading his books with Julia Donaldson to the boys since they were little.
He was in Sevenoaks for storytelling as part of Sevenoaks Literary Festival and read to the children, drew his characters and gave a little insight into his creative process. The boys all asked him to sign a book and he drew a character for each of them too. Jude has his own Gruffalo! Apparently Zog is being made into an animation this Christmas and he’s currently illustrating Julia Donaldson’s next book about aliens 😀
