Author Visits: James Allen's Preparatory School

I'd like to say a very big thank you to the brilliant school librarian Rachel Hickson and to everyone I met at James Allen's Preparatory School for the wonderful welcome they gave me when I visited them last week!

It was a real pleasure to talk to Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 about reading and writing – it was inspiring to see how enthusiastic they were about their favourite books.  Quite a few of them had already read Varjak Paw for their book club, and made this fantastic display:

They had some great questions about the writing process, and I very much enjoyed answering them, and then signing books for everyone at the end.  If anyone would like some more writing advice, here's a link to a blog post I made with my top tips.  

And if anyone has any more questions that we didn't have time to answer on the day, or would like to say anything about the visit or my books, just leave me a comment below!
