Story Lab - Picture books under the microscope
As part of my creative writing course, Scribbles, I provide a bonus module that includes all sorts of extra videos and inspiration. In one of these videos, I pull apart my own picture book, Blue, the Builder’s Dog (Penguin/Viking) and analyse how the language works. Scribbles participants find this video fascinating and enlightening.
I’ve now done a similar analysis of Clarrie’s Pig Day Out (HarperCollins).
As an Institute special, I’ve bundled these two highly instructive videos together into one fabulous Story Lab session.
