Magical Children: The Key to Story

Sally Gardner (Author)

Sally Gardner looks at how story is key: remaining true to the story and characters at all times. She talks about the setting up of character and the development of character through writing, with reference to the use of an ensemble cast that goes back to the the Commedia dell’arte, and how it's important to create stories without patronising children, by working to their strengths and brilliant imaginations.
