Over the past few weeks we have been shadowing the Kate Greenaway Award which is for outstanding illustrations in a children’s book.

Chris Riddell won the award this year with ‘The Sleeper and the Spindle.’

One student commented:

“I enjoyed doing it. We met each Monday and discussed a different book on the shortlist. We marked it on the art. It was good to explore how art is used in books. I really liked the winning book as it had very good illustrations and it worked fantastically well with the tone of the book. The context of the black with the little gold detail worked effectively.”
