We visited the Veach Ballroom where we sat and listened intently to the Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell.
Chris Riddell is an illustrator, we had studied some of his work in class including Coraline, Goth Girl and The Edge Chronicles collection.
Chris Riddell illustrated as we were arriving and these illustrations matched some of the questions he answered from some schools that sent them in prior to this event. We had thought of some and sent some in and our question was the last to be chosen! We were so happy!! We even got the original copy of the matching illustration of Chris Riddell’s signature symbol, The Cycling Fish!!
Some of us pre-ordered some of Chris Riddell’s books or books that he had illustrated! They then got to meet him and have them autographed by him!! Amazing!!!
