The incomparable illustrator & author, former Children's Laureate and all round national treasure Chris Riddell, who's work includes the Ottalineand Goth Girlseries 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.
Every six months, BookTrust appoints a new Writer in Residence (or Writer-Illustrator in Residence) to write blogs, run competitions and give us their own unique perspective on the world of children's books.
