Julian Clary & David Roberts on funny children's books

Television presenter and author Julian Clary talks about drawing on his family 'who were always telling jokes' as inspiration for his series, The Bolds (Andersen Press), while illustrator David Roberts shows us how he drew the hyenas that star in the books.

The ReadingZone Live event took place at South Norwood Primary School and we were joined by Cheam Common Primary School and Greenvale Primary School.

Children asked the author and illustrator about what inspired their work, their favourite children's books, how to write books that are funny, and drawing on your own lives to create stories.

You can watch the two sections of the programme, via these links, using Internet Explorer.
