  • Gavin Bishop: Life Stories: $20.00

A Marlborough Book Festival session with award-winning children's writer and illustrator Gavin Bishop in conversation with Jane Forrest Waghorn. Gavin Bishop deftly weaves his own life experiences and adventures into many of his stories.

His loyal teddy bear and his childhood in Kingston, beside Lake Wakatipu, are central to the books Teddy One-Eye and Piano Rock. Gavin's stories are also revealed in many of his other charmingly written and illustrated works - Katarina, Mrs McGinty and the Bizarre Plant, Hinepau, and The House That Jack Built to name a few. He reflects on his life stories and the books inspired by them.
