Mini Grey sends book inspiration for Balfour Children
Ms Rhodes let me know that you’ve been looking at my book Traction Man, and using it as inspiration to make your own stories.
Here’s a bit about making Picture Books: Making a picture book is a bit like making a cake: the first thing to do is collect your delicious ingredients – which are ideas to go in your story. I keep my ideas in my sketchbooks and stick in anything I think might be a good ingredient for a story. So when I want to make a new story I can look in my sketchbook and see if anything in it might be a good starting place for a story. I do have favourite starting points, like: fairy tales/toys having adventures/pets with jobs.
