Dear Guildford High Junior School,
I am completely overwhelmed by the reception and the kindness the staff and girls have shown me for my day at your school.
I have thoroughly enjoyed it and your girls are a delight. They are in every way exceptional! I am very impressed by their handwriting and writing skills and they were a pleasure to talk to. They certainly made me feel very special. I am in the process of marking their competitions. Having glanced at the rhyming competitions I must say that it is going to be difficult to choose a winner as they are all so good!
If any of the girls want to send me their stories, it would be my pleasure to read them and pass my comments. Do guide them to my website and the contact page where they can send it in.
I look forward to seeing you for the prize giving for the World Book Day Rhyming Competition.
On the 4th of March which is World Book day, I have been invited to the Guildford High Junior school for the day to talk to the girls through Forms 3 to 6. I will be talking to them about writing and illustrating. I will read extracts from both my books and tell them what the books are about.
After, there will be activities for the girls ending with a competition which will be won by a girl from each Form.
The day will end with book-signing and an opportunity to buy both books.
I look forward to meeting the girls and the staff from one of the most distinguished girls schools in the country.
Watch this space… I will tell you all about it.
