I was recently asked to come along to Malvin’s Close Primary Academy in Blyth, Northumberland, where I got to meet every class in the school. It was a hectic couple of days as I moved from one class to another talking about my book, designing bars of chocolate, finding great descriptive words for my characters and making up stories using the names of chocolate.
I had the great privilege of opening up not just one, but two new libraries in the school in both KS1 and KS2 and meeting the incredibly talented winner of a school’s writing competition.
Everywhere I went, I was greeted with huge enthusiasm and warmly welcomed into every class. I was continually impressed with the quality of designs, word play and great questions I was asked – although I’m not too happy about being asked how old I was!!! (I’m 22 – in case you were wondering!) I had such a great time, I almost feel a bit guilty about spreading too much chocolate panic. Almost!!
And there were lots and lots and lots of great Chocolate Panic Faces!!!! Hope to see you all again soon.
