Notes from the Drawing Board: There will be alligators

Published on: 17 February 2014 Author: Chris Riddell

The incomparable illustrator & author, former Children's Laureate and all round national treasure Chris Riddell, who's work includes the Ottaline and Goth Girl series of books, became our tenth Writer in Residence back in 2014. In this blog Chris drew alligators, BookTrust bats and a small hairy bog person called Mr Monroe. There's also a belated birthday message to Raymond Briggs.
