Wow! Bestselling author Ben Clanton talks to Y4 and 5, live from Seattle!

We were so thrilled to have a live Zoom meeting with mega-selling children’s author Ben Clanton, who writes the much-loved Narwhal and Jelly series. We were allowed to ask questions and see inside his personal notebooks to get a peep at what’s coming up. One project he has just started is about a cloud called Ploof; the next narwhal book is going to be Halloween-themed. It was fascinating to see these ideas in their very early form. He even drew one of his trademark cartoon narwhals while we watched. What an amazing opportunity for his fans here. And what a lovely, generous man.
