An afternoon with Debi Gliori

This afternoon we were absolutely delighted to welcome children’s author and illustrator, Debi Gliori to Billinge House. Debi has written many picture books and novels including ‘Goodnight World’ and ‘Dragon Loves Penguins’. She has been shortlisted for major prizes, including the Kate Greenaway Award twice and the Scottish Arts Council Award. The children enjoyed listening to her read her brand new book, ‘All the Way Home’.

Debi talked about all the different characters in her book that lived in the Arctic and her love for penguins! The children had their pencils at the ready and enjoyed following Debi’s instructions of how to illustrate their very own penguin!

We want to thank Debi for taking the time to visit us and Elaine and Jake from Silverwood Events for hosting such a wonderful afternoon.
