Virtual School Visits

I love visiting schools to talk about books, but sadly it’s not possible at the moment ‘in real life’. BUT I can visit your classroom virtually – and the good news is that I can visit anywhere in the world this way. Scroll to the bottom to watch a video trailer.

My online school visit package costs £100 for UK schools, £90 for schools not in the UK. This includes:

  • One 45 minute interactive live session via Zoom (or similar), including Q&A, live drawing and interactive storytelling, and the choice of either an owl quiz or an extra storytime with Pink Lion or King Otter
  • A copy of The Boy Who Loved Everyone AND a copy of So You Want To Be An Owl or any two of my books of your choice (sent to your school via (UK schools only I’m afraid)
  • EXCLUSIVE access to three pre-recorded videos: a studio tour (including a peep inside my collage drawer, a look inside my ideas box and much more), plus readings by me of both books.
  • FOUR activity sheets – one art-based, and one writing-based, for each of the books.
  • EXCLUSIVE access to a Padlet for you to share class work with me before the visit.
  • Signed bookplates for any children who buy one of my books.
  • I will email you the drawing I will do during the session to inspire children to write our group story afterwards – see example above, about a fox who wanted to be colourful, his friend the dog and the magic pencil that caused havoc – all invented by children!

“We really enjoyed the session, and the children learnt lots of interesting facts about you, your books, your inspirations and the writing process. Where you covered a range of topics, this kept the children engaged.

“The interactive story writing was a great aspect of the session. I love how you linked it to ‘The boy who loved everyone’. As the children had time to think of some questions prior to the session, this really helped with asking relevant and meaningful questions too.”
