An Interview With Alan Dapré 

The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.

We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with the children's author, Alan Dapré. Alan is the author of more than fifty books for children. He has also written over one hundred television scripts, transmitted in the UK and around the world. His plays have been on BBC Radio 4 and published for use in schools worldwide. His current work includes the Porridge the Tartan Cat series for young readers, published by Floris Books. 

Alan has his own website if you want to read more about him which can be accessed on this link:
