Interview with Axel Scheffler as he draws Pip and Posy


The first two books by Axel Scheffler for Nosy Crow, Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter and Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle are now out – you should find them in all good UK and Irish bookshops and many supermarkets.

Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter was reviewed in an Easter children’s books round-up in The Guardian on Saturday, and the books have been listed as big books for Book Expo America (Candlewick Press will publish them in December 2011).

Axel’s done some “proper” interviews: I wrote about them in an earlier blog.

But, when we were working on the books, I interviewed him too, while we filmed him drawing Pip and Posy. You can see the results in the video above.

  • I’ve just watched this gorgeous video with 2 of my children. We all think Pip and Posy are lovely, and I’m off to Waterstone’s tomorrow to order/buy 3 each of the titles – one each for my nephew, one each for my goddaughter, and one each for….me! (& I’ll let my children see them too!!)

    It was brilliant seeing Axel paint them.
