You recommended it, so in May we went to the Gecko Press Les Petits kiwis festival at Capital E to see French picture book author-illustrators Clotilde Perrinand Eric Veillé. It was so much fun! We listened to some of the stories and learnt how to draw the Big Bad Wolf and the Granny, and how to make a flip up picture. They taught us how many pictures go into making a book – if you look at the photo you can see! We left our Wolf book at home so couldn’t get it autographed ( And they read a really cool book about scary monsters (A Monster Wearing Socks?) that weren’t actually scary, which made mum and me laugh out loud but they didn’t have that one for sale and we already had the other books!
Here are some photos of the day and also one of my wolf and granny drawings! It’s not as good as the one Clotilde drew that you can see in the photo. She is very clever. And Eric was very funny!
Thank you for telling is about this because it was really fun :). I’m sorry I didn’t remember to tell you about it until now.
