About Korky Paul

Korky is the award-winning illustrator of over 60 picture books, chapter books, poetry collections and pop-up books, including the hugely popular Winnie the Witch series. Whether witches and their familiars, fantastic beasts, vampires, dinosaurs or whacky professors, Korky’s drawings are packed with rich detail and famed for their wild characterisation and anarchic style.

Over the course of the week Korky will share his passion for drawing with over 400 P1-4 pupils. The sessions will be jam-packed with stories and silliness and are a fantastic way to get pupils excited about reading, drawing and using their imagination to create characters of their own.
