do just that. It is a free series of curriculum-tailored webcasts starring children’s authors and illustrators.It brings stories to
life and encourages reading for pleasure for Key Stage 2 pupils. It is watched in classrooms around the world. Each 30-
minute episode is comprised of author interviews (led by questions from the online audience), fun videos, draw-alongs and
theatrical performances. The show is designed for formal learning: curriculum-linked lesson plans accompany every event,
providing teachers with book extracts and all the tools they need to prepare their classes pre-show, and to stimulate
classroom discussion post-event. Most schools outside big cities would never get the opportunity for an author visit – but

connection. Here are some of the best bits
