Pupils were treated to the sight of a leading illustrator at work, then were given the chance to work with her at Sheffield High School.

Infant and Junior School pupils enjoyed an art lesson from author and illustrator, Lydia Monks.

Sheffield based Lydia, who illustrates best-selling children’s books for author Julia Donaldson, visited the school to launch the paperback version of her most recent collaboration with Julia, What the Ladybird Heard Next.

Lydia created the pig, the horse, the cow, the sheep and the ladybird from the book and then the girls created the characters themselves.
