World Book Day 2021: Author & Illustrator Academy: Humza Arshad & Henry White

DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER with Humza Arshad and Henry WhiteJoin Humza Arshad and Henry White, the co-authors of the Little Bad Man series!


Humza talks about how you can miss out in life if you judge things or people before you’ve given them a chance. Imagine if Little Badman hadn’t gone to the meteor shower – he would’ve missed a great adventure!


• In the story, Humza doesn’t want to go to the meteor shower because he thinks it sounds like boring science stuff. Actually, it turns out to be a big adventure for him. Can you think of a similar experience of your own, where you didn’t want to do something, but it turned out to be amazing? Write a paragraph telling us about it. 


• In the story, Humza judges the kids in the neighbouring town – but in the end they turn out to be nice people who help him. Write a persuasive speech about why it is important not to judge others too soon.
