Author visit from Peter Brown
KS2 were lucky enough to receive a visit from the children’s author and illustrator Peter Brown. His titles include New York Times bestsellers The Wild Robot, The Curious Garden, Children Make Terrible Pets and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild. Peter has earned numerous honours for his books, including a Caldecott Honour, a Horn Book award, two E.B White awards, a New York Times Best Illustrated book award and 6 New York Times bestsellers.
During his visit, Peter told the children all about how he became an author/illustrator and his inspiration from when he was growing up. He then explained how he came up with the ideas to write his ‘The Wild Robot’ books, before moving onto explaining how his books actually get put together with the help of his publishers. Lastly, Peter showed everyone the stages he goes through when drawing the main character ‘Roz’ and how he uses different colours to bring his illustrations to life.
Peter then held a book signing where children could buy a book and have their name written inside and signed.
All of the children had a great afternoon and showed an immense amount of enthusiasm during the talk as well as asking interesting questions to find out more!
