A host of Andersen authors and illustrators did a fantastic job at the Edinburgh Festival over the last few weeks, wowing audiences with their fantastic books, offering pearls of wisdom to young (and old!) readers and, in the case of John Fardell, demonstrating astonishing attention to detail with mechanical 3-D objects that had inspired his latest book, The Day Louis Got Eaten.
Below are a few photos from the festival, at which John Fardell, Philip Caveney, Jason Wallace, Derek Keilty, Ali Lewis, Chris Judge, Lynne Chapman, Mei Matsuoka and Peter Bentley all made appearances.
