Many of the best children's books today are true masterpieces of design, with imaginative texts, pop-ups, pullouts and removable items to stimulate young, enquiring minds. But with such sophisticated models, how can parents and teachers bridge the gap between what children read and what they write themselves? In this all new follow-up to Making Books, Paul Johnson sets out to achieve this aim by showing how children even as young as five can combine words, images and paper engineering to make books as enchanting as those they delight in.
Paul Johnson is an influential teacher, writer and artist whose work has had a profound impact on the teaching of writing in primary schools. He is the author of Making Books and Copy & Cut.
