Before half term author/ illustrator Marta Altes came to Elmhurst to speak at our English Hub launch. She also spoke to all of our pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Marta’s book Little Monkey was chosen by The Book Trust to be given to every reception child in the country as the Time to Read book for 2018.
Marta read Little Monkey, the story of a courageous, little monkey in the big jungle. We even learnt how to draw the main character. Marta illustrates her own stories and she told us that some of her inspiration comes from combining her favourite things. Have a look at one of the creatures that was inspired by her workshop.
