The Christmas Eve Ghost

Written by Claire Speer, 22nd July 2010

The short (only two minutes!) video below offers an exciting glimpse into the life of world-renowned illustrator, Shirley Hughes, and the making of her latest picture book The Christmas Eve Ghost.

Listen to Shirley explain how she tries to recapture and express past emotions through her drawings, why her childhood in “thrilling” 1930s Liverpool has had such an impact on her work, and the importance of picture books in turning those who are as of yet unable to into keen readers.

The Christmas Eve Ghost is due to be published on the 6th September 2010 by Walker Books.
