The Strongest Boy, The sticky Doll, FoxyStories have been around for thousands of years. Long before printing was invented people were telling each other stories. It is these traditional tales, handed down from storyteller to storyteller that have always fascinated picture book creator Jessica Souhami. But how do you capture the rhythms of a traditional oral tale between the pages of a printed book? From preliminary research, to preparing a rough layout; from choosing the colour palette, to tips on how to create suspense and excitement, Jessica will take the children through the process of creating a picture book as she shares some of her own favourite stories.
