Two author assemblies were booked in for early October: one in Accrington and the other in Fleetwood.
The first stop was Spring Hill Primary in Accrington. It was nearly a year since my last visit and it was lovely to return. The Y2 – Y6 pupils discovered how Danger Zone was created, from the initial plan to the final draft. They saw examples of Martin’s magical illustrations and even got a mini masterclass in drawing Eric! To finish the session I put on the storytelling waistcoat to tell one of the Tales from More Impossible Tales. It went down a treat!
My second assembly visit was closer to home in Fleetwood. I’ve visited St Mary’s Catholic Primary many times stretching back to the original Impossible Tales. It’s always a lovely place to visit. The children found out all about Eric’s new adventure and I even managed to finish the session in time for the lunchtime staff to set up the hall! Always important not to upset the most important people in the school!!
Eric even got a picture with two pupils celebrating their birthdays…
I enjoyed my time in both schools and would like to thank Mrs Hornby and Mrs Sewell for organising the sessions and the accompanying book signings.
