Published on

I recently visited Ellis Guilford School where Year Seven students have been reading my book, TALL STORY as part of the Learn-to-Learn Programme. The objective is to develop not just literacy but a love for reading by exploring the book via different themes. I was amazed by the work that they produced and the energy and imagination of the children and the staff. Thank you so much for reading Tall Story. I learned a lot from you all!
