Doodle, doodle, do!

This is what happens when you put Hervé Tullet, Sarah McIntyre, Niamh Sharkey and a heap of French speaking kids under giant umbrellas.
Do try this at home.

Conference high

You know it's a good CBI conference when you spend each session thinking: I have to go home and write a book NOW!
You know it's a GREAT conference when you spend each session thinking: I want to write the kind of books ---- (insert name of current speaker) writes.
So, over the course of the weekend, I've decided to dedicate my whole career to translation (Sarah Ardizzone's talk); books for preschoolers (Hervé Tullet); 5-8 silly romps (Alex T. Smith); novels in verse (Sarah Crossan); well thought-out picturebooks (Jon Klassen).
And of course thanks to Alex T Smith I now know I can draw too.
I want to be artistically multitasking when I grow up...
