Infant & Junior Author Visits

Infant & Junior Author Visits

For Nursery, Reception and Years 1 & 2

Readings of my picture books and lots of funny poems. I also explain how I write books, how long it takes, where ideas come from and much more. Children can ask questions - in fact it's lovely if they come prepared with some good ones.

For Years 3 & 4

Readings of my books appropriate for the age group plus lots and lots of poems. As above, I encourage children to ask questions on all aspects of writing and publishing which they usually do with great relish.

I also explain how long it takes to write a book, whether it's easier to write a 108,000 word book for adults or a 150 word book for children (believe me everybody gets that one wrong!), where ideas come from, whether I was any good at English at school, how I actually work and loads of other stuff. It's always a good fun, highly inter-active and even - dare I say it - educational.

Years 5 & 6

As above, with stories and poems plus even more educational content according to your requirements (including how to re-draft, edit and research). I explain how a book is made from idea to finished product and show some of my best-selling books, including my biography of Roald Dahl - now in its 13th year - through all the various stages of creation including actual dummy books, original picture proofs, and manuscript drafts - complete with publisher’s scribbled critical comments. Your students will really get a flavour of how a book is created and what an immense amount of work is involved.
North West and North London and much of Middlesex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and parts of Bucks and Essex.
