Can a door become a book cover? (+ 4 Fab Schools)

Last Sunday saw us travelling around the dreaded M25 for another great week of school visits. We stopped off in Hertforshire for a brilliant visit to St Ippolyts Primary School. We were made to feel so welcome here and loved our day in school. All the children from Reception to year 6 were full of enthusiasm and the book signing the next day proved incredibly popular. Thank you to Gayle Stewart for organising a very special visit. We hope we'll be able to come back soon!

We then set off on a lovely  drive to Durham. Although it is nearly 350 miles from our home in Sussex, we love staying in this city, so it was a real treat to be back. We met a whole new group of fans at Easington Lane Primary, where we had a great time getting all of KS2 involved in bringing my books to life. Thank you to Tammy Flynn for inviting us along! You can see some of the children from Easington Lane in the photo, happy to have received their books. 

Next was a return trip to two 'old' friends - Blackhall Colliery Primary School and St Anne's Primary School. Blackhall Colliery yet again provided a wonderful, enthusiastic audience as we introduced them to my two new books - thanks to Claire Baker and all the other staff involved - we look forward to returning when my next book is published!

At St Anne's we were in for a surprise - after our visit last year, they turned their classroom doors into giant versions of my book covers. Take a look at the photos. Wow! Aren't they just amazing?! Apparently the children will be updating their doors with my new book covers - I can't wait to see these and will post photos on this blog! The visit itself was fantastic and full of laughter - it's schools like this that make me want to keep writing books. The sooner I write another book, the sooner I can come back! Thank you to Angela Scott for a wonderful visit and I hope to see you all very soon!
