Authors Live: Philip Ardagh

We were joined at the Edinburgh Festivals by award-winning author Philip Ardagh for a hilarious, and somewhat disgusting Authors Live broadcast!

Philip told us all about his book series The Grunts, which is illustrated by Axel Scheffler, as well as sharing a rather unusual writing tip and answering questions from our studio audience.

Learning resources are available to use alongside this broadcast, helping you to explore Philip's books with your class.

A full transcript of this event is available here.

COMPETITION: Win a signed Philip Ardagh book for your school. As well as getting Sian Bevan's name wrong rather a lot of times, Philip Ardagh also told a deliberate factual error related to Norse mythology. (Well, he said it was deliberate but that could be a lie too.) If you spot it, send your name, age and school address to by 30 October 2017, when one lucky winner will be chosen at random. All entrants must reside in the UK.
