Dan Metcalf's Author Visit

Last week, Dan visited our school to present his very latest books about a very inquisitive girl called Lottie Lipton, who solves mysteries in the British Museum.

Dan read some extracts from his book and talked about his career as a writer, emphasising the importance of re-drafting his work to get the best piece of writing he can. Crediton Community Bookshop hosted the event and were amazed when they realised that HALF the school had bought one of Dan's books. Some children already had a copy of one of his titles, and brought it along to be signed too! A really good visit and we hope that Crediton Bookshop will be able to bring many more authors to our school to inspire us to write - and of course - read too!
