Thornden Hall played host for Hampshire Schools Library Service ‘Meet the Author’ event on Tuesday, 7th March 2017. Hampshire pupils, including some Thornden students, were extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to see author and illustrator Chris Riddell.
He produced an illustration for every school attending whilst pupils were arriving. All pupils were given a card on which to ask Chris a question. He then picked questions at random and answered them with illustrations. Questions varied from ‘which of your characters would you like to be’ to ‘what is your favourite shop’!
Chris then spent over an hour signing books for pupils.
After a short break he was then interviewed by Charlotte, Shivani and Katie for BBC School Report Day, which takes place on Thursday, 16th March, before he headed off to Brighton for an interview with the BBC.
