I'd like to say a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to Kathryn Pennington, Ruth DeChastelain, and all the amazing students and staff I met when I had the pleasure of visiting East Hunsbury Primary School last week!
I had a sense that this might be a brilliant visit when the school posted a picture of their librarian dressed as a tiger, with a copy of my new book TYGER!
This is definitely a school that works tirelessly to inspire the love of reading, and it was wonderful to talk to Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 about reading and writing and books, and to hear all about their favourites.
What I was not prepared for was the fact that they had decorated their doors with book covers – and put some of my books among them, alongside some of my own favourites!
It was a total pleasure to sign books at the end of the day for everyone who wanted a book. But if anyone missed out and would like a signed book, you can order one from Pea Green Boat Books, who did the bookselling on the day. And if anyone from East Hunsbury would like to ask me another question, or to say anything about the visit, just leave me a comment below!
