We were so lucky to have a visit from the author and illustrator of a brand new book, Monsters: 100 Weird Creatures from Around the World. Sarah Banville (author) and Quinton Winter (illustrator) spent time with the pupils in Key Stage 2 sharing their wonderful research into the murky world of monsters and the stories surrounding them. Quinton shared some of his illustrating techniques and Sarah revealed some of her findings and how she shaped this into a written text for children.
The children were spellbound - and then they even got to meet a real live monster....Bigfoot! With Sarah and Quinton's help at translation, he answered all their questions about being a monster and even said he'd like to learn to read too: what a challenge for Ms Redmond!
