Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After two years travelling the United Kingdom - visiting schools, libraries, and festivals, and meeting thousands of children - this book provides a glimpse of the incredible journey Chris has been on during his time as Children's Laureate. Full of sketches, doodles, and pages from The Laureate Log - his daily record of his time as Laureate - this beautiful hardback has been lovingly curated by his daughter Katy, who is a talented illustrator in her own right. With its cloth binding, ribbon marker, beautiful end papers, and full-colour interiors, this truly is a book to treasure.
