How about this for a special WayWord treat? …
It’s only Axel Scheffler!

Come and meet the illustrator behind the country’s best loved picture books here at Storyhouse. Axel created The Gruffalo with Julia Donaldson nearly 20 years ago, and since then they have made countless children’s
classics such as Room on the Broom, Stick Man and The Highway Rat.

Axel will draw characters from his books, talk about his work and read stories including his latest collaboration with Julia Donaldson, The Ugly Five.

Afterwards Axel will sign copies of his books which will be available to buy.
