The talk I usually do is based on Sophie and the Shadow Woods which works well with both boys and girls.
Polly Bennett, Deputy Head of Junior School, Ratcliffe College:
‘A huge thank you for coming into school and speaking to us. ALL the children have spoken about since is Sophie and the Shadow Woods, shadow creatures and the next book they are going to read! They absolutely loved every minute of the talk and meeting you! I think we now have 130 budding authors!”
