Last Thursday Year Two were lucky enough to attend an Oundle Festival of Literature KidLit event with Alex Milway. Alex is an author and illustrator and he treated us by reading not just one but two of his books from the Pigsticks and Harold series. He also showed us how to draw both Pigsticks (a pig ego likes adventures) and Harold (a hamster who is Pigsticks’ ever-so-slightly reluctant assistant). We also saw a cartoon featuring the characters. Alex is hoping that it will be commissioned by a TV company so we will be looking out for the intrepid adventurers hitting our screens in the future. We have got signed drawings on our classroom doors – they are fantastic!
Huge thanks to our wonderful PFA who fund our trips to the festival each year.
