Auckland Writers Festival Schools Programme 2017
Proudly supported by Freemasons Foundation

Now published in 28 countries, Donovan Bixley has been drawing and writing stories from early childhood. He has illustrated over 100 character-filled and entertaining books from the hair-raising hijinks of his junior chapter book series Flying Furballs, to his award-winning illustrated biography Much Ado About Shakespeare. In this session he talks about how he brings words and pictures together to tell the story and balances the roles of author and illustrator.
