Lauren, best known for her series of ‘Charlie & Lola’ books, spoke about how she finds inspiration for her books and also how she uses the collage technique to help with some of the designs for her illustrations.

After her talk, the children were given the opportunity to ask Lauren some questions and we discovered that she carries a trusty notebook with her on her travels to record new ideas for her stories. Lauren rounded off her visit by signing the books that the children had bought.
