Kidsverse – Author

This month on Kidsverse, the girls talk to Tony - an author, music journalist, and drive in aficionado.
The girls ask him about how he became a writer and how a teacher inspired him to read widely and diversely. He talks about the novel Huckleberry Finn  and how this impacted him as a young boy. He also discusses David Foster Wallace.
Evie says her favourite author is David Walliams and Lily's the Hardy Boy series.  So how do authors come up with their stories? How are they inspired and more importantly - has he ever written about animals?
