Dear Parent/Carer

The award-winning, bestselling children’s author, Billy Bob Buttons, will be visiting this school on the MORNING of Tuesday 29th November 2016.

He is the author of sixteen very popular children’s books including Felicity Brady and the Wizard’s Bookshop, the bestselling Muffin Monster, Tiffany Sparrow Spook Slayer, The Cool Kids Book Prize winner, WIDE AWAKE, and the UK People’s Book Prize winner and bestseller, I think I Murdered Miss. Last year, this book sold over 100,000 in the UK alone and won the UK People’s Book Prize.

Every year, he meets with approx. 150,000 primary school children to deliver his popular literacy workshops as well as numerous secondary schools. Throughout the morning, he will be delivering the workshops to selected classes, focusing on Planning a Story, Adventure Writing and Characters.

There will also be an opportunity for your child to buy a signed and dedicated book. Attached to this letter is a price list plus lots of info. on the different books they can pick from. If you wish your child to buy a signed book, simply put the money (the author will have change with him) in an envelope (with your child’s name and class written on the front) and hand to the author on the day after the workshop.

We hope your child will enjoy the experience of creating a story for a specific age range with a published author.
