This excellent illustrator and author of many different folk tales visited the Pre-Prep and held some wonderfully informative sessions with each year group during the day.
Joanna showed the children how she builds up her illustrations, starting with detailed pencil sketches then adding very bright coloured paints. Her stories come from all around the world and the children were transfixed with her story telling.
Mrs Pitcaithly has been a lifelong fan of this particular author, and came back to meet Joanna and join in with one of the sessions.
Signed copies of the books were very popular with all the children – some may have to wait while we order more copies from the publisher!
