Would you like to find out who inspired the famous children's book character, Percy the Park Keeper?
The author and illustrator who created him, Nick Butterworth, invites us into his home to show us how he works, from the first spark of an idea to the published book.
This fascinating non-fiction book can be read alongside Nick's other titles for Collins Big Cat, Percy and the Rabbit, and Percy and the Badger.
Pages 14-15 show three stages of Nick drafting an illustration of Percy, ideal to use to explore ideas of preparation and editing/planning within children's own work.
