An interview with Alex T. Smith

Today’s interviewee is an illustrator who won an award with the very first book he illustrated (Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero). He’s since written and illustrated his own picture books including Home, Bella & Monty, My Mum Has X-Ray Vision and Ella. He’s also the creator of an utterly brilliant series perfect for newly fluent readers, Claude, all about a little dog’s adventures with his sidekick, Sir Bobblysock.
