BADDIEL GOES FOR A YOUNGER AUDIENCE
COMEDIAN AND author David Baddiel helped to launch Hertsmere Jewish Primary’s book week on Monday. He read extracts from two of his books for children and chatted to pupils about his life and literary career. Ten-year-old Benjamin Gershlick said “it was so interesting to have a real live author reading his books to us”. Talia Buckland, also 10, was “surprised that his children inspired him to write them”. Head Steven Isaacs said it had been “a super experience for the children”.
