World Book Day 1st March 2012

World Book Day has been celebrated since 1995 and I am pleased to be busy with some Wiltshire school visits to promote reading and hopefully inspire some creative writing via The Secret Society of Dragon Protectors books which I have co-written. Last week Urchfont Primary School; today St Edmunds, Calne and tomorrow Derry Hill Primary School. I enjoy the Key Stage 2 visits probably more than the actual writing….children at this age have boundless enthusiasm and many questions….I have become quite a dragon expert (with their help, and I defer to John MacPherson’s superior knowledge on the subject!) I have visited many schools on World Book Day over the years and one of the best scenes I have witnessed is a DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) where the whole school, pupils and teachers alike literally do that…even if they are on the sports field or playground.

      Hi Sophie I’m so glad you enjoyed my visit – don’t give up on your writing! I really enjoyed coming into your school yesterday. Great that you’re going to be a dragon protector! Have a wonderful time in New York and hope you find a dragon to protect.
      Best regards
