Year 5 and 5 enjoyed a trip to meet author and former Blue Peter presenter, Konnie Huq recently as she launched her new book, ‘Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World’. Hosted by Birkenhead School, the children enjoyed hearing about how the book evolved, her inspiration for the story and how she first discovered a love of writing. She showed them how she went about illustrating the book and then read the children some of the most funny extracts. The children were then delighted to all get to meet her and receive their very own signed copy. Meeting real life authors is always exciting for our students and hearing about the process of book writing; from the first idea to the creation of the story, the editing, illustrations and publication was an inspirational experience.
