The Gruffalo, Stick Man, and Tiddler the storytelling fish are just a few of the characters whose colorful images fill the pages of some of our favorite picture books. Axel Scheffler's images are, for many of us, immediately recognizable so we were very happy to meet him in person on Thursday.
Axel explained to us how he turns a plain text, often from writer Julia Donaldson, into sketches and eventually the illustrations we know so well. He kindly signed many books and enjoyed meeting our students as much as we enjoyed meeting him.
