Thursday 8 February 2018

2 – 2:30pm

Reading is magic – stories can make us disappear into another world, travel through time and even transform us into someone else entirely!

Spend your afternoon lesson with some magic makers! Authors Sophie Kinsella and Nick Mohamed, 2018 World Book Day authors Clare Balding and Tom Fletcher and other special guests will bring their stories to life, answer your questions and inspire your class to pick up a book and get reading.

Have your pencils and paper ready for a draw-along with the incredible Tony Ross, who’s illustrated the Horrid Henry series, an array of David Walliams’ books and, of course, the brilliant covers for Clare Balding’s Racehorse series and her new World Book Day book, The Girl Who Thought She Was A Dog.

Find out more about the books written by the stars of the show:
