They were captivated by his stories and his journey as an author. The visit provided valuable insights into the world of reading and writing – with the children not only having fun, but also engaging with the author - leaving a lasting impact on all who attended.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Leighton Park School for inviting us to this wonderful event and providing our pupils with the opportunity to meet such a fantastic author.
