On Monday we visited Kenley Primary School and had great fun working with KS1 and KS2. There were many highlights to the morning, but possibly my favourite was when I asked the boy playing Spooky Steve to act terrified. He is obviously a born comedian, as he let out one of the most undramatic 'screams' imaginable, which made us all roll around laughing. What a brilliant way to start the week! Thank you to all the staff for their support on the day and during the book signing a couple of days later. We'd love to return soon to tell you all about more of my books - especially my next one, The Ghost Lord Returns, when that's published!

We love returning to schools to see old friends and on Wednesday we were invited back to Furzefield Primary School. After having such a wonderful time there last year, could this year's visit be even better? Of course! We were welcomed again by the lovely librarian Sam and the enthusiastic deputy head, Dave (who was busy writing the Doctor Who themed year 6 play, complete with Tardis - how cool is that?!). I always like to make an entrance, but in the KS2 presentation Dave

had a few minutes to draw it! She's called Jessica number 2,
because the illustrator of my books is also called Jessica.
I think Jessica 2 gives Jessica 1 a run for her money!
bunch to entertain and their loud laughter was infectious. Throw in some great acting (especially from a very cheeky Becky), and a brilliant illustration from Jessica, and this was a morning to remember. I can't wait to return to Furzefield with The Ghost Lord Returns when it's published!
Next up we are going international again, with a visit to Brüggen School in Germany in a couple of weeks. Watch this space!
P.S. For those who have seen my presentations, this morning I woke up with my hair looking like this... Maybe I don't need the Jedward wig anymore?!
