World Book Day – Author Events

World Book Day is not far away.

If you were thinking of asking an author to visit your school this term, then now is the time to start making contact.

Authors get booked up for World Book Day itself quite quickly, so you may want to think about arranging your event during the week of World Book Day, or the two weeks either side of it.

If you would like me to come and visit your school or library, I still have some availability. Have a look at my School Visits Page or contact me send me an email from my Contact Page.

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

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
