Alex T. Smith

March 07, 2019

This week we are so proud to celebrate World Book Day with the internationally bestselling author-illustrator Alex T. Smith. On Tuesday, The St. Francis' theatre was full and Alex's presentation was great fun and involved live drawing as well as a draw along.

Author-illustrator Alex T. Smith is the award-winning creator of the Claude series, which is published in 16 languages worldwide, as well as numerous picture books. Alex’s talent is in huge demand: he’s collaborated with Richard Adams, David Almond and Juno Dawson, among others. Alex is also widely acclaimed for his work illustrating children’s classics: he won Children’s Book Winner of the World Illustration Awards 2016 for his illustrations in a new edition of Dodie Smith’s The Hundred and One Dalmatians.

We really hope Alex will visit St. Francis' again.
