'I was looking through picture books when I came across one book that till this day, managed to stay in my favourites of all time'

From Bob The Builder, who can fix anything, to the enchanting world of Wereworld, Curtis Jobling has created it all. An author and an illustrator, Jobling holds this very captivating session at day two of Dhaka Lit Fest on Friday, November 8. 

“When I was about two years old, my mom was up in the romance section in a public library and I was looking through picture books when I came across one book that till this day, managed to stay in my favourites of all time – Where the wild things are by Maurice Sendak.” says Jobling. By the time he was 8 years old, he was back at the library, choosing his first ever novel, The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien.

Curtis talks about his best-selling novels and ends the session with a very interactive question and answer session with the children.
