Ritter Rost Author visits GISB

GISB was excited to welcome German author and illustrator Jörg Hilbert to a virtual ‘Bücherwerkstatt’ – Book Making Workshop. Jörg Hilbert is the author of the beloved Ritter Rost books and one of the all-time favorite children’s book authors in German-speaking countries. His many works include musicals, composition, lyrics, poetry, novels, picture books, and more.

Jörg Hilbert discussed with our elementary school students how he comes up with his wonderful quirky characters, the process of making a children’s book from the first sketch to the finished product, and much more. Students did not miss the opportunity to ask him many questions about his books, workplace, favorite animal (he likes cats), and the number of books he has ever written.

Thank you, Herr Hilbert, for visiting us! It was an exciting morning!
