Children from Northolmes Junior School in Leith View Road, Horsham were treated to a day of storytelling by Newhaven based author, David Fuller.
David read extracts from his latest book, Alfie Jones and a Change of Fortune, which is the first in a series of books based on the characterof Alfie.
The children were given the opportunity to act out parts of the book, create their own group story and were given ideas about how to write imaginatively and creatively with the audience in mind.
Vicki Boxall, English Reading co-ordinator, said: “David’s visit was part of our plans to promote reading and writing development at Northolmes. We wanted to provide a strong role model, especially for boys.
“David certainly managed to inspire every child in the audience.”
