Michael Rosen and Allen Fatimaharan Virtual Author visit

Through the British Library and Seven Stories Museum children had the opportunity to take part in a 'Cook Your own Fairytale' session. Micheal Rosen retold the story of Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm.
We learnt about What is a Fairytale and how they are usually short and told all over the world, travelling by word of mouth and through books.
We had tips from Micheal Rosen about how to write our own fairytales. Allen Fatimaheran then gave us an art tutorial and we drew our own forest setting.
Beforehand, we had written questions to Micheal and Allen and we found out that Micheal's favourite fairytale is 'The Raj has big ears'. Allen's was 'The Juniper Tree". Micheal even answered our questions:
Q -What is your favourite poem? 
A- Down Behind the Dustbins.
Q- Do you like chocolate cake? ( Micheal has written a very famous poem about chocolate cake).
A- I do, but my favourite cake is fruit cake.
We are looking forwards to  'cooking up' our own fairy tales after this very inspiring morning.
