Isle of Man Bank National Story Day (Friday 27th September 2013)
Curtis Jobling will be coming to school with an interactive talk for the Y3 and Y4 children.
Curtis is an author and illustrator who is probably best known as the designer of the BAFTA- winning BBC show Bob The Builder. Early in his career he worked as a model and puppet painter on Wallace & Gromit’s A Close Shave and Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks! As an author and illustrator of children’s books, his works include Dinosaurs After Dark (with Jonathan Emmett), Skeleton in the Closet (with Alice Schertle), My Daddy, Cheeky Monkey and perhaps his most notorious character Frankenstein’s Cat, now an animated series in its own right commissioned by the BBC and sold to broadcasters worldwide. His most recent work revolves around the Werewold series, aimed at older children, which include: Rise of the Wolf, Rage of Lions, Shadow of the Hawk and Nest of Serpents.
