Project Description

Ross Collins

Online Event – Primary 1 & 2

    • February
    • Online

On graduating from Glasgow School of Art Ross won the MacMillan Prize for his first picture book. Since then he’s illustrated over 130 books for children and written about a dozen or so. Children in over 25 countries seem to enjoy them. Some of the glittering awards Ross has won are the UKLA Award, the CILIP Amnesty Honour, The Royal Mail Book Award and the Scottish Children’s Book Award. He has been twice short listed for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. Ross’ book ‘The Elephantom’ was adapted into a critically acclaimed play by those clever people at the National Theatre who made that ‘War Horse’ thing. Ross lives in Scotland with a strange woman, a hairy boy and a stupid dog.

Ross will talk about his work, read from his stories and do a “draw a long” with the pupils. Questions can be supplied by schools in advance of session.
