Summary Anthony Browne visits a Year 5 Class at Kentish Town C of E Primary School and talks about what inspires him to write and illustrate children's books. He answers questions such as Where do your ideas come from, how long does it take you to draw one picture and where do you illustrate/write your books? We visit Browne's studio where he reveals his inspiration and working methods: from the initial dummy and drawings to final illustrations combined with the text. He explains how finding his father's old dressing gown one day sparked his memories of his father and inspiring him to use it in the book My Dad. He reads extracts from My Dad, Gorilla, Voices in the Park, The Tunnel, Changes and Willy the Wimp. The film allows teachers and pupils to explore Browne's witty world and its blend of surreal with the everyday. For Browne the visual or hidden clues in his illustrations are key to his books - images which tell us part of the story that the words don?t tell us
