Author Visit: Jon Klassen

The Lower School is looking forward to a visit from popular children’s author and illustrator, Jon Klassen. Jon has illustrated  several books, including the extremely popular I Want My Hat Back, and This is not my Hat, of which he is also the author. Both books spent several months on the New York Times Best Seller list and the latter received both the Caldecott and Greenaway award for excellence in Children’s illustration.

You can appreciate Jon Klassen’s art in several media. Before he illustrated children’s books, he worked in Los Angeles on such animated feature films as Kung Fu Panda and Coraline. He has also illustrated the work of other authors such as Mac Barnett in Extra Yarn and Maryrose Wood in The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series. His latest effort is another collaboration with Mac Barnett, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole.

Jon will be in the School Centre on the morning of September 10th. His books will be available for sale on Tuesday, 9 September, and Wednesday 10 September, and he is happy to sign as many books as possible while he is here. Purchase your books on Tuesday to avoid disappointment!

Salvatore Rubbino

Illustrator Salvatore Rubbino was at ASL last week, working with our Grade 3 students to explore architectural drawing using landmarks from the city of London. Our students were challenged to look closely at buildings to notice line, shape, contrast and repeating patterns.  They showed their thinking by drawing Tower Bridge. We think their work was amazing. What do you think?
