Clare Barker Author Visit

Clare Barker visited our school last Wednesday to share her new book about a dog called Knitbone Pepper.

 From her battered old suitcase, she pulled out the most amazing hats and took the children on a journey with extracts from her book. Clare also did a master class showing the children how to create a new character for their own stories. Although she did not illustrate this book, Clare is also an artist and shared a beautiful painting of her own house tucked away between the hills, which the children have a copy of. The children were thrilled to have the books they bought signed by Clare - a very special keepsake for them!

Her book is available to buy from Crediton Community Book Shop at the fantastic price of only £6, instead of the usual price of £9.99. It could be a perfect present for you to give (or receive!)
