Author/illustrator David McKee talks about Mr Benn and Elmer / by Harry

Mr Benn was my favourite TV show when I was a nipper. I loved the magic and limitless imagination Mr Benn's days inspired. David McGee is the man behind Mr Benn and also Elmer, the adorable patchwork elephant. This little video from the Guardian website, is of him talking about how he came to be an illustrator is just lovely. Take 4 minutes out of your busy day and give it a butchers. A nice cuppa and a custard cream would be the perfect companion.
