Guy Bass
Guy Bass, author of Stitch Head has heard all about the wonderful reading taking place at our school and he just had to get in touch with a message!

Joffre White

This message is from the one and only Joffre White who is a UK Patron of Reading.

You can find his fantastic book Frog, and it’s sequels, in our school library. 

As well as a message via Twitter, Joffre has made us a video sharing his favourite books, I think his favourites match a bit of ours! Do you agree with his choices?
