Children from local schools had the opportunity to meet an award-winning author and illustrator as part of the Ilkley Literature Festival.
Alexis Deacon entertained the children with his drawings, and stories from his collection. After the presentation, Year 2 children at Ilkley’s Westville House School went to meet the author and took away personally signed copies of his books for their library.
Fergus Brown, one of the pupils, said: “I want to be an author like Alexis Deacon when I grow up.”
