School Visit News Roundup!

A little flurry of press and kind words followed our delightful tour back in September and I thought, as today is a bit gloomy, I'd share some highlights to brighten things up.

To start off, a lovely reporter from the mighty Formby Times attended one of our school workshops and was kind enough to advertise our little expedition with a piece in the newspaper -  you can find the web version HERE for your delectation.

Merchant Taylors (whose logo wonderfully demonstrates harmony in the animal kingdom, as two camels worship a sheep) have posted a special report, with pic, all about our trip to their really rather impressive, Hogwarts-style school. You can read it HERE.

Important note: we never said we'd worked on all those movies - comics based on the movies, yes, but not the films themselves!

Quernmore Primary School, located on the edge of the forest of Bowland, deep in the beautiful Lancashire hills, were even kind enough to send us a letter saying how much they enjoyed the visit. Here's a little highlight from headteacher, Sarah Baines:

"It has been a delight to see children tucked away in various nooks and crannies in and around school, pouring over your book and chortling with laughter. What has been even more exciting to see is children wanting to have a go for themselves, particularly the reluctant writers."

Wow ... you can keep your fancy trinkets and awards - if THAT isn't high praise I don't know what is.

More news as it breaks!
