A big thank you to the lovely staff and pupils of Two Moors Primary School for inviting me in for an author visit recently. It was wonderful to work with the Reception children. After having a good giggle with Gruff (Gruff’s Guide to Fairy Tale Land), the children went on to draw their own fabulous maps of Fairy Tale Land.

There was one moment which I found particularly touching. After the session had finished, the class went outside to play…except for one little boy who, to the teacher’s amazement, chose to stay behind. He was carefully adding long, disgusting fingernails to his troll!  A perfect end to the visit.
