You think you can't draw? Well, think again! Watch Horrible Histories World legend Martin Brown Author & Illustrator tell you why anyone can draw if they really want to in this film from the NCBF At School series. And don't forget to try Martin's creative challenge. Learn about an endangered animal and design a poster publicising it. There are plenty in Martin's beautiful Lesser Spotted Animals series of books. Martin's film is one of eight showcasing some of the festival's favourite children's authors. You can find them here at https://www.ncornbookfest.org/ncbf-at-school/. Happy drawing!
