Jon Klassen is the rockstar of kid's authors. He's not only delighted kids and parents alike with his brilliant picture books I Want My Hat BackThis Is Not My Hat and the upcoming We Found A Hat, but did you know he worked as an animator on Kung Fu Panda, Coraline, and even created a music video for U2? So why did he refuse to draw when he was a little kid at school in Canada?

Find out this, and more, when Jon shares his stories and favourite childhood songs including Burl Ives, Smokey Robinson, The Velvet Underground with Barry Divola.
