James is the creator of the much-loved Katie and Ella Bella Ballerina series and many other books, including Koshka’s Tales, Miranda the Explorer and Boy. Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performs in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and art. We were very fortunate to have James in school on 13th September, were he led workshops and discussions to inspire all our pupils to engage in English and artistic skills.
Pupils from Nursery to Year Six were mesmerised by the amazing discussion and guided illustrations by James Mayhew. James shared with our pupils his journey of creating his characters and story ideas. Our pupils and teachers have been so inspired by Mr James Mayhew that they have created fabulous art work and writing.
