All Back to Ours: In the Playroom with Lampie & The Children of The Sea
We join Annet Schaap as she does a live illustration from Lampie and the Children of the Sea as her translator Laura Watkinson reads from this wonderful book.
As children we were thrilled by how pictures told just as much of the story as words did. With that in mind, the Tandem Collective has teamed up with New Dutch Writing to invite some of our favourite children's illustrators to lead workshops, from storyboarding to book jacket designs. With creative prompts to stoke little fires in your imaginations and real-time encouragement, this session is perfect for budding artists - or simply those who just want to get creative!
Today we join Annet Schaap as she does a live illustration from Lampie and the Children of the Sea as her translator Laura Watkinson reads from this wonderful book.
Every evening Lampie the lighthouse keeper's daughter must light a lantern to warn ships away from the rocks. But one stormy night disaster strikes.

But what she finds there is stranger and more beautiful than any monster. Soon Lampie is drawn into a fairytale adventure in a world of mermaids and pirates, where she must fight with all her might for friendship, freedom and the right to be different.
