This morning, Gavin Bishop came to our college and talked to a captivated audience of Year 7 and 8 students.

GavinBishop4To Year 7 students, he talked about illustrations and all the steps between the idea of a book and its publication. To Year 8 students he talked about his favourite book Piano Rock and his book in preparation Teddy One Eye, the life seen through the eyes of his own Teddy, which he showed us.

He answered many questions and we thank him very much for his visit. We also thank the New Zealand Book Council for organizing it as part of their Writers in Schools programme.

If you want to know more about his books or if you want to write to him, here is his website http://www.gavinbishop.com.
