Author, actor, and, comedian Humza Arshad MBE visited UoB School as part of his Little Badman Tour promoting his latest book in the series ‘Little Badman and the Rise of the Punjabi Zombies.’
We were lucky enough to find out more about Humza’s journey to becoming an author and enjoy a short, live reading from him.
“When I was growing up I didn’t really see many books that had characters in them that looked like me, which is a shame considering how diverse the UK is. So I created this amazing series for everyone, but also for children from my community. Hopefully it will inspire a few young writers along the way!” Humza.
Illustrator of the series, Alesei Bitskoff, also delivered a workshop on how to draw the Little Badman from the books – we discovered we have some budding artists among us!
A huge thank you to Humza, Penguin Random House Publishing, The Bookshop in the Green, and our Librarian Ms Middleton for organising.
