Year 5

Jess Townsend Author Visit

On Monday, some of year 5 and 6 enjoyed meeting Jess Townsend, author of the fantasy novel, ‘Nevermoor,’ and hear about her inspirations for the book, which she intends to be a series. Perfect for Harry Potter and other fantasy fans, the book is about Morrigan Crow who is cursed and fated to die but ends up getting whisked away to a magical city called Nevermoor.
Jess told of how although she began drafting and writing the book when she was 18, with all the redrafting and editing it actually took her 10 years to finish writing the book which she is now extremely proud of, and she plans for it to be a series of 9 books.

Some of our pupils had a copy of the book signed, and there will be a copy of Nevermoor, plus the upcoming second book Wundersmith, in our school library.
