I opened a book and made some friends. I shared their tears and laughter And followed their road with its bumps and bends To the happily ever after. I finished my book and out I came. The cloak can no longer hide me. My chair and my house are just the same, But I have a book inside me. Everyone is welcome to walk through the door. There are books in boxes and books on shelves.
You can look into the Mirror or read The Times, Or bring along a toddler to chant some rhymes. Are you into battles or biography? Are you keen on gerbils or geography? Gardening or ghosts? Sharks or science fiction? There are students revising, deep in concentration, And schoolkids doing projects, finding inspiration. Yes, come to the library! There is a portrait of me in the National Portrait Gallery see below.
I have always used stories in this way with groups of children, and find it not only increases their enthusiasm for books but helps increase their self-confidence. The website contains videos demonstrating children rehearsing and acting stories, and a large selection of recommended books by a variety of authors and illustrators, each one complete with cast list, tips for props and costumes, and other performance suggestions. Most important of all, there is the opportunity for teachers to post their own tips, photos and films.
I loved it. I read the poems, recited them, learnt them, and then started making up some of my own. Although I wanted to be a poet all those years ago, I later decided I would rather go on the stage. I have a theory that this happens to quite a lot of people. A Anywhere and everywhere: things that happen to my children; memories of my own childhood; things people say; places I go to; old folk tales and fairy stories.
The hard part for me is not getting the idea, it is turning it into a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. A It can take months or years for the idea to grow in my head and for me to plan the book. This is a very important part. Then, when I am ready it could take anything between a week for a picture book and six months for a chapter book to write it. I do have my own study, too, and sometimes I write on trains or in the library. A The publisher knows lots of illustrators and they choose the one which they think would suit my words best. The gruffalo looks the way he does because various things that just happened to rhyme like toes and nose, and black and back.
I write a story and send it to the publisher. Then the publisher sends it to Axel to illustrate. A I find the actual writing quite hard work. A I have written books. A It keeps changing. A Walking, cycling, playing the piano, singing. Sadly my black cat Goblin died recently he was very old.
