Book Week comes early to Twickenham Prep with a very special guest author

The magical world of author Jan Fearnley came to Twickenham Prep in February to celebrate World Book Day. All the children in Pre-Prep dressed up as their favourite Jan Fearnley character, with some very imaginative and creative interpretations. The staff joined them as the 'Jaggedy Dagger' monster character. The award winning author/illustrator, whose titles include 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' and 'The Baby Dragon Tamer', spent the day with the children sharing her stories, creating puppets of the Flittermouse and signing books.

As a very exciting treat, Jan read her brand new story to the children, 'Light Fingered Larry' not published until June, a humorous tale about an octopus, who can't help stealing, which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
The focus on books and reading continued throughout the week with shared reading, voting for a favourite bed-time story or author, the Year 7 boys held an assembly about the delights of reading and a silent reading session.
