Interviewing illustrator Ashley King

Recently i have been filming vlogs and i was not only lucky enough to meet illustrator Ashley King but also interview him for one of these vlogs.

Ashley is the illustrator of The Bookshop Girl and Erica’s Elephant. He studied at Coventry University and he is probably one of the nicest, genuinely, nicest people you could ever talk to. He also knows a thing or two about other books so he’s awesome to chat to.

Ashley is a superb illustrator, his whimsical but heart felt images are beautiful and a real gem in any book! I look forward to following a long career in children’s book illustration.

You can find the vlog of our meeting below:

Thank you to Ashley King and Waterstone’s Coventry for letting me film this vlog.

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
