We were very excited to receive Kevin Crossley-Holland today. In a whole school assembly, he talked about his love of the local myths and stories that were told to him as a child. Little did he know, that as an adult, he would draw upon these memories and stories in his own writing. He showed us his Carnegie medal he was awarded for his book Storm and he showed us some of the illustrations Jane Ray has drawn for their collaborative book Heartsong.
At lunchtime it was good to have a long queue of children buying Kevin’s books. He took the time to chat to each child as they had their book signed and each written message was different. Thank you to parents for supporting this event. A big thank you to Kevin for making it a special day.
