Our week kicked off in a fabulously bookish fashion when author P. G. Bell came to King’s Hall as part of the launch celebrations for his new book, The Great Brain Robbery. Peter has numerous fans amongst our pupils as his first book, The Train to Impossible Places, was selected as our Year 5 and 6 Book Club read earlier this year.
We were all very excited to hear about the next installment in Suzy’s thrilling and magical adventures aboard this rather unusual train! The children were fascinated to hear how the series has its roots in bedtime stories that Peter concocted for his children, and there was laughter galore as the audience worked together to invent their very own Impossible Train! Later, our eager readers had the chance to have their own copy of Peter’s books signed and there were smiles all round as we enjoyed a morning dedicated to the joy of reading.
