Author Nick Butterworth Visited DIS

In December we have been fortunate to host children's author and illustrator, Nick Butterworth (e.g. “One Snowy Night” and “QPootle 5”). He has been drawing for over 50 years and his fabulous characters and stories are well known around the world.

PYP and MYP students enjoyed his sessions and all have been inspired by his work. When talking with the Grade 1 classes, he reminded the students that books have a “door” to them that allows you to visit a “magical” place. You just follow your imagination.

Nick has kindly donated not just the signed pictures he drew during the presentations, but also a fabulous piece that he has brought from his London studio. They will be sold in the silent auction at African Night on the 30th April 2019.
