The children at MBHT were so lucky to enjoy a wonderful day with an incredible, well-known illustrator.... kOrky Paul! He is mostly known for his drawings for all the Winnie the Witch books.
kOrky spent time with each class, designing them their own personalised picture of Winnie herself. The children helped to decide on many elements of her character!
Oak class also enjoyed a drawing masterclass, where kOrky gave away some of his top tips for designing characters. They used charcoal, which was a first for kOrky with children, but he loved it, as did the children!
After school, we enjoyed a coffee afternoon with a book sale and the chance to have kOrky sign our books.
What wonderful memories made - and a real excitement for books!!
