School Visit to Dover

I’ve been down to Dover this week, to visit Whitfield Aspen Primary School. It meant that I got to walk along the famous White cliffs of Dover. There were no Bluebirds because we don’t have Bluebirds in Britain!

Dover is the main port to France, where the Channel Tunnel goes underground and where ferries ply back and forth with trucks, cars and passnegers.

The next video tomorrow will be about my journey home where I stopped off to visit the house of the Jungle Book author, Rudyard Kipling. See it here

On tour- Brussels – London – Suffolk

I even designed the cover of the brochure and posters!

What does an author do all day? Last week I went to the British School in Brussels then back to London for a day seminar near Euston, then off to Suffolk for the Lavenham Children’s Literary Festival then on to Ely near Cambridge to have a meeting with a potential new publisher.

I was so pleased to get back home and to crash out in my own bed and sleep without having to get up to get anywhere – luxury!

 

Meet Sue Hendra – Author of Supertato

Meet the wonderful Sue Hendra, who writes and illustrates the amazing Supertato books with her partner, Paul Linnet. I had the chance to ask her a few questions when were both working in Netley Marsh School on Empathy Day – 12th June.

We both had a great day telling stories to the children and talking about empathy and how to understand other points of view by reading books and inhabiting the characters

Get the hilarious book, Supertato here in the UK
