Author Talk at KAIS EMS International School

A few weeks ago I gave an author talk and picture-book reading session at KAIS International EMS school in Tokyo on their Career's day.

I read three of my stories to the children: Milkshake Shake, Peter the Lonely Pineapple and Lily and the Moon.

I also talked about the processes involved in writing and illustrating a picture book and brought some of my original artwork for the children to see.

 

  

 

I was very impressed with the questions that the children had prepared for me, such as how long does it take to write a story, how do I get my ideas and if I have a favorite book.

 

The children enjoyed the songs and dances connected to Milkshake Shake and Lily and the Moon and at the end they all made their own "Moon Story" and presented it to the class. It was great fun listening to their stories.

 

  

 

And what a lovely surprise it was to get this hand-written thank you card from the children a few days ago!
