On-demand: The Magic of Reading with Tony Ross, Sophie Kinsella and Tom Fletcher

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

Spend a lesson with some magic makers!  Authors Sophie Kinsella and Nick Mohammed, 2018 World Book Day authors Clare Balding and Tom Fletcher, and other special guests 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 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.
