Find out how Nick Butterworth, creator of Percy the Park Keeper, was inspired to write the first story after a walk in the park.

In this special ReadingZone Bookclub event, we meet Nick Butterworth, author and illustrator of the Percy the Park Keeper books, who tells us what inspired the first Percy the Park Keeper book; how doodling as a child led him into illustrating and writing children's books; and how he writes his books.

Several schools took part in this event, and children had the opportunity to put their questions to Nick, including what it's like to be an author, what's his favourite book, and who is is favourite Percy the Park Keeper character?
