As you may know, Alex was selected as this year's World Book Day official illustrator, which means he's been in HUUUUGE demand! And rightly so. His work is amazing and I'm still pinching myself that I am lucky enough to be working with him.

So we spent some time with a group of very enthusiastic children in a rather large and echoy room as part of the celebrations. Alex told them all about his cheeky dogs and drew them, then taught everyone how to draw Claude, star of the hugely successful young fiction series.
We then did a bit of a double-act talking about Foxy Tales. Alex drew Foxy and Alphonso while I read a some bits of the story. I *think* the children enjoyed themselves. I certainly did!
With huge thanks to the Southbank Centre for having us, and to Hodder Children's Books for putting us up in such style!
