How to Draw Puffin Peter

Puffin Peter  was published in 2011. Which was exactly ten years after my very first book was published. It was shortlisted for The Kate Greenaway Medal in 2012 and was later part of the Bookstart programme.  Here is a link to an older blog about Puffin Peter.

I read Puffin Peter in schools and festivals and I am often asked to teach children how to draw a puffin. So here we go. First, this is me reading  Puffin Peter in English.

Here is me again, this time I am reading Papuchalk Petr in Czech.

And here are the instructions for drawing Puffin Peter. Have fun!

How to draw Blue Penguin

cover ? 2

I am writing this blog on 9th June 2020. Today is World Empathy Day and today, perhaps more than ever, we need to think about understanding and also sharing each others’ feelings.

None of us look the same, we may live and grow up in different circumstances, in different parts of the world, but we all see and feel in a very similar way. We all know how it feels to be sad, to be lonely, to be worried or even scared, …but we also know how it feels to be happy, to be loved,  to be appreciated… And that is the beauty of it. Trying to communicate with each other, listen to each other,  being interested about each others’ life, culture and heritage… This is what makes us human.

For today I will read one of my books – BLUE
