As part of the NCBF this year, I spent a day at St Joseph's Primary School in Redcar. While there, I was introduced to Hannah, who enjoys writing stories and is especially interested in illustration.
Unfortunately, Hannah wasn't in one of the classes I was booked to see, so she popped over to the staffroom at lunchtime, especially to meet me, and showed me some of her work. I especially liked this collage story about people at work, so she agreed to send me a copy.
It's taken a while for her to work out how to email it in a form I could open, but it was worth the wait, as now I have the chance to share some highlights of the book with you. I think you'll agree that it is really rather sophisticated for one so young.
I love the page design too - it shows a really strong sense of composition and makes unusual use of the space. It all balances beautifully and sets the illustration off perfectly. Well done Hannah - keep it up!
