Author Visits: Perrymount Primary School

I'd like to say a big thank you to Ukachi Akalawu and everyone I met at Perrymount Primary School for the great welcome they gave me when I visited them last month!

It was a pleasure to talk to Years 6, 5 and 4 about reading and books.  I was inspired to see so many great young readers in the school, and delighted to discover that many of them had already read Varjak Paw.   I told them all about how my books were really written, and how many drafts Varjak Paw took to get right!

There were many questions!  We didn't quite have enough time to answer them all, so if there's anyone at Perrymount who would like to ask another question, or to say anything about the visit or my books, just leave me a comment below!

And it was a pleasure to sign books for everyone who wanted them at the end of the day.  So thanks again to everyone at Perrymount for a fantastic visit – and keep the Way alive!

Dear Siwan,

Thank you so much for your fantastic comment! I'm really glad you enjoyed my visit, and are enjoying Phoenix too.

I enjoyed visiting your school very much, because I felt a lot of people there loved reading and books as much as I do! So thank you again for a great day.

With best wishes,
SF Said

Dear Mohamed,

Thank you for your comment. My first book was Varjak Paw, and I think I've been inspired by all the books I've ever read! But the biggest inspiration is probably Watership Down - I wrote a bit about it here, if you want to know more:

With best wishes,
