This afternoon we welcomed children’s’ author Konnie Huq to Beardwood Bank to talk to the Junior School children about her first book, ‘Cookie’.
The event was organised in partnership with Silverwood Events. These talks offer the children a wonderful opportunity to meet an author and hear them speaking in person about their book.
Konnie is a former Blue Peter presenter so we were thrilled to welcome her to Westholme. Cookie is Konnie’s first book and is a magical adventure story about a young girl whose life is a disaster. Not only is her best friend moving away but now the most annoying boy in the world is buying the kitten she has set her heart on! And then he joins her class at schools! And then he moves in next door!
The pupils were enthralled and excited to hear Konnie speak and she entertained them with a science quiz. After a thoroughly engaging talk she kindly signed books and posed for photographs.
Thank you to Silverwood Events for arranging such an amazing visit and to Konnie for her time and inspiration.
We hope Konnie will return to us with her next story!
