“The specific aim of the Summer Reading Challenge is to keep children reading through the summer holidays, and my recent visits were to add to that project, keeping children fired up about books and keeping the momentum going. “I am also keen to keep children drawing and expressing themselves creatively. I always show children my latest sketchbook – usually including a drawing done on the train on the way to the event – to show them that I still practice my drawing every day, and I try to encourage any keen artists in the group to get sketchbooks of their own.”
