Craig Green is a children’s book author who lives and works in Cornwall with his partner, Emily Barr.
He founded the educational publishing house ‘Clickety Books’ and is an Associate Lecturer of Children’s Literature at Falmouth University.
Craig will be hosting two events, the first, for primary school children is inspired by his bestselling Cornish picture book Captured – The Incredible True Story of Thomas Pellow. It tells the story of how, in1715, the 11-year-old Thomas said goodbye to his mother and set sail out of Falmouth Harbour on a voyage delivering Cornish pilchards to Italy… yet it was it was a quarter of a century before he stepped onto his beloved home shores again. What happened to him is an extraordinary true tale of kidnap, shipwreck, imprisonment, captive service, battlefield bravery and, finally, daring escape.
Craig’s second event will be a story building character workshop with secondary school children. Expect high energy storytelling and inspirational creative thinking.
