An Introduction to Children's Picture Book Illustration with Mini Grey

If you came to hear author and illustrator Mini Grey talking in Stonesfield about her work - or if you have always wanted to try and create a children's picture book - you may be interested to know that Mini is running a three-day course this summer in Buckingham as part of a new summer school.

The course will be an informal exploration of ways to create children's picture books in words and pictures, from Wednesday 6th to Friday 8th August inclusive. For more information about Mini's course and the rest of the school see here.

Hermelin the Detective Mouse

The course should be excellent - Mini is a patient and hugely inspiring teacher and her work is outstanding - 

It’s extremely rare to find a brilliant illustrator who can tell a gripping, original tale so effortlessly. Like fine cheese, you feel Hermelin will only improve with age
