"The children learnt about what an author does but also how stories can be told and how they can be super exciting. It was just fantastic!" Year 1 Teacher
"Inspirational for children who aspire to be authors and discussing the writing process from the point of view of an author was great. Good for children to see that writers are people and anyone can be a writer. We are currently discussing careers so good for children to hear the journey to become an author." Year 6 Teacher King David Primary School
"I thought that I'd like to be an author too as it was brilliant. I got lots of ideas and information about how to write." Year 2 pupil at Welshampton Primary
