Mr Penguin at King’s!

We were delighted to welcome author, Alex Smith, to the school to discuss his new book Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure, which was inspired by his love of Indiana Jones and Poirot!

Alex has been both the author and illustrator of numerous books including the very popular Claude series, which is soon to be launching as a 50 episode series on the Junior Disney channel across the world. He has also illustrated renowned books written by other authors too, including a new edition of 101 Dalmations.

Alex presented to our infants and juniors, discussing his love of drawing and how he grew to love writing stories after his grandfather used to write a story for him every day about what his toys got up to when he was at school!

Following his presentation in the Vanbrugh Theatre, Alex personally signed all of the pupils’ copies of both Claude and Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure.

A great memento from a great day!
