A short paper describing the uses and impacts of our graphic novel, ILLEGAL, in classrooms around the world.
BiographyI love telling stories. I remember staring at Terrance Dick's name on the spine of a Target Book in a school classroom when I was seven and realising in that moment that I wanted to be a writer. It's all his fault. I specialise in graphic novels and children's books and have sold over ten million copies around the world. My most recent graphic novel, Illegal, co-written with Eoin Colfer, tells the story two brothers on their dangerous journey from Africa to Europe and has won over a dozen awards including an EGS medal for Excellence in Graphic Storytelling.
