Useful website 

I would like to investigate the non-fiction children’s book format and focus my attention on

How to write poetry

My textbook for creating the illustrated book will be Ted Hughes’ Poetry in the Making. This was a series of ten talks which were broadcased on the home service and then printed as a book in the 1960s.

Key concerns -
-Exploring visually the process of writing.
-Evolution of the Thought Fox.
-Revealing the inner self.
- Methaphor of fishing.

Once I have found the format for the piece I would also like to look at the possible second book on

How to paint
