The award-winning author and illustrator and former Children’s Laureate, Lauren Child, creator of family favourites including Charlie and Lola, Hubert Horatio and Clarice Bean talks about her latest Clarice Bean novel Clarice Bean: SCRAM! with Fun Kids Radio’s Bex Lindsay.
Learn how Clarice Bean’s family came to have a dog and how he got his name in this hilarious and joyous new novel. It’s also the story about sisters and how one hot summer weekend, they fall out over a pair of flip-flops and then fall back in again – united by a stray dog.
Lauren will talk about and show how she creates her characters and her illustration using cutting out and collage techniques.
There will be a book sale after the event and Lauren will sign copies of her latest book, Clarice Bean: Scram, published by Harper Collins Children’s Books.
