On Friday I made my annual trip to see the current Year 2s at Ringwood Infant School to talk about my books and do some drawing with the children. Each class is named after a different New Forest creature, so it’s my task to get the children to draw a cartoon version of it via a step-by-step illustration that they can do along with me. Ringwood Infants is a wonderfully friendly and enthusiastic school, and the children and teachers alike muck in and get cartooning. They also, very kindly, let me sell my books after school, and considering I only ever talk to the one year group there, the queues for a signed book always stretch out of the library.
If you’d like to book me for a school visit, or would be interested in having Val Anne Lee, the author of On The Banks Of Hatchet Pond, or Martin Bradley of Top Gun Of The Sky and Dusk Until Dawn, then do get in touch via the contact page. And if you’d like your own copy of one of the books then do visit my online shop.
