The Best World Book Week Ever

If you’re looking for a book to read to your child or class in the run up to World Book Day, this book is perfect. It encourages children to try reading new types of books, newspapers and comics, gets them excited about books and World Book Day in general. It also gives you plenty of ideas for what you could during World Book Week/Day. If you do buy a copy of the book and would like some worksheets relating to the book, please send me an email

Here are just some World Book Day activity ideas you could do relating to the book:

  • Design your own front cover for the Jungle Times
  • Act out the story for the rest of the school. Perfect activity for Y5 or Y6
  • Design your own Super Monkey magazine
  • Create a book themed treasure hunt with map and chocolate coins.
  • Hold a class book quiz. The children could have fun writing the questions.
  • Write your very own fairy tale.
  • Hold your own bedtime story afternoon and read the stories the children have written (while wearing PJs and drinking hot choc).

I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of the story, please send me a tweet or email.

Lots of love



World Book Day is nearly here!

world book day 1I’ve had a busy few weeks. I visited 500 children at St Margaret Mary’s Junior School in Huyton, the children were amazing. The school promotes reading a lot and this showed in the work the children produced. I was blown away by the imaginations of the Y3 and Y4 children I worked with. The Y5 and Y6 pupils were really interested in finding out what press conferences are like and how I go about interviewing people.

Later this week, I’m heading to Victoria Road Primary School in Northwich and I can’t wait. I think doing author talks is the best thing about being an author because I get to inspire children. I love it when children (and teachers) come up to me after one of my assemblies¬†and say that my talk has really moved them.
