Story Book Mural for the Kindergarten Corridor at St Winifrieds School, Wibsey, Bradford

Horton hears a Who, The Gruffalo, Jolly Pocket Postman, Q Pootle 5,
Three Baby Owls, Harry's Bucket full of Dinosaurs
I was asked to do a storybook mural for the kindergarten corridor.  The idea being that it will encourage the children to read. So I decided to use characters from well know books and not so well used phrases. This I hope will encourage them to go and investigate the books for themselves.

Winnie Witch, We're going on a bear hunt, Percy the Park Keeper, The Snowman, The Three Billy Goats Gruff

There was a lot of wall and only two and half days to do it so I used the words to link the characters.

I wanted to convey the idea that books bring characters to life, so I used the idea of them stepping out from between the pages of the book to illustrate this.
