BRIGHT START IN THE DARK DAYS

Great auience at Inkpen Primary

The days are dark, the weather’s dire and it’s Blue Monday tomorrow. But guess what…Kath and I are having the time of our lives! We kicked off our new term  to a blistering start by visiting three new local schools (new to us!) – Spurcroft Primary in Thatcham, Birch Copse Primary in Tilehurst and Inkpen Primary…in Inkpen! In between these visits, we visited our old friends at Francis Baily Primary and did a morning workshop with a large group of Year 3’s.

…So a very busy week, but all very enjoyable and heart-warming to say the least.

Each of our ‘new’ schools gave us a lovely welcome and it proved an absolute pleasure to introduce our Mokee Joe series to lots of pupils in KS2. The subsequent book signings were VERY busy and it was so humbling to chat and while away the time with our many new and enthusiastic fans. We were bombarded with drawings of Mokee Joe, ideas for stories and loads of questions about me and my books. It was easy to see that our new fans were more than inspired.

Kath and I would like to express here in writing our thanks to Cath Airey, Kevin Cooling and Jane Kanisius for being such great hosts during our visits. We hope you will have us back again before too long to build on the great literary start we feel we have made at your lovely schools.

BIG thanks to Mr Pilsworthy and the Year 3 teachers for ensuring our Year 3 workshop at Francis Bailey was such a success. We’re already looking forward to our next visit in a couple of weeks to view the work that the children come up with.

…And finally…very best wishes to all reading our ‘dark’ books in the dark days ahead!
