This was my second visit to Northfold as I’d been to share Impossible Tales last July. The children were as fantastic as ever and listened beautifully while I explained how Eric’s story came about. I think they were a bit shocked when I showed them all of the edited mauscripts. Hopefully they won’t complain the next time their teacher asks them to edit their own work! The children spotted all of the alterations which Martin made to the illustrations and they agreed that his pictures matched the text. Martin will be thrilled to bits when I tell him!
After a quick break in the staff room, I visited the Key Stage 2 classes to chat to the pupils and answer some more questions. It was lovely to sign some books in each class and welcome some new recruits to Team Eric.
Thanks to Mrs Avis for setting up the session and organising things in school so everything went so smoothly. I can’t wait to return at some point to share the next book.
