His love of drawing and storytelling is well-established, and now author and illustrator Chris Riddell has paid a visit to a village school to share his passion.
Mr Riddell, the UK's current children's laureate, spent a day at Rocklands Community Primary School talking to pupils about how he writes and draws.
Shena Scholes, from the school's Friends of Rocklands School group, which organised the visit, said: 'He spent about half-an-hour with each group talking about how he illustrates and writes.
'He was very engaging and the children sat still for the whole time he was talking.
'He had a big queue of children and parents who wanted to get his signature on is drawings at the end of the day, so that's a testament to how engaging he was.'
