I had a great time visiting All Saints Primary School, Benhilton in Sutton, both yesterday and today. I delivered four character workshops and two author talks to some really bright and receptive Key Stage 2 pupils. There was lots of laughter and fooling about - from me, not the children - when I gave the animated author talks which included some terrible tales of my childhood. They were genuinely happy to take part in the workshops and produced some fantastic characters from the clues I gave them.
It was also good to have some different questions during the Q & A
sessions; What would you have done if you hadn't been a writer? Would
you think about writing a fourth Aggie Lichen book?
Teachers had been reading the first book to their classes which resulted in lots of books being sold which is also a bonus.
