It was a pleasure to talk to Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 about writing and books, and it was inspiring for me as a writer to see the huge enthusiasm for reading in this school. Quite a lot of them had read Varjak Paw already, and so they had some brilliant questions for me!
Three of the students – Mark, Lewis and Samir (in the photo with me above) – had even written a poem about Varjak Paw! I was delighted when they gave me a copy, and I'm honoured to post it here.
If anyone from Highfield would like to ask me any more questions, or to say anything about the visit or my books – just leave me a comment below!
