Illustrator Spotlight – Katrin Dreiling

Illustrator Spotlight – Katrin Dreiling

Meet Katrin Dreiling illustrator of The World’s Worst Pirate written by Michelle Worthington.

The World’s Worst Pirate, listed as a Notable Picture Book in the CBCA 2018 Book of the Year awards, is Katrin’s first picture book.

In the interview, Katrin discusses her love of drawing and of adding humour to her illustrations. She tells us how adding the background story of Bird and Cat, not included in the text, was an additional pleasure for her, and the readers.

Read the story to your children and encourage them to observe Katrin’s illustrations. Challenge them to find Bird and Cat and Mouse and explain their story.

Print the interview to display in the classroom or include in a class book about authors and illustrators.
