Mermaids Read Too!
Our lovely Senior Girls Librarian Lesley Kirkup was lucky enough to win a piece of original artwork by children's author and illustrator, Chris Riddell. The picture depicts a rather unusual scene of a mermaid reading a book!
Chris is a former UK Children’s Laureate and a political cartoonist for the Observer, and his books are hugely popular in the Junior Girls library. Lesley had the artwork framed and kindly donated it to the school. It now has pride of place outside the Junior Library, above the Book Tree, which is full of the writer's best known books. The competition to win the artwork was run by the School Library Association. Well done Lesley!
