Pupils help au­thor Anya to come up with an end­ing for her lat­est story

Leek Post & Times - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

PUPILS at St Leonard’s First School in Ip­stones have wel­comed lo­cal au­thor Anya Acres to read them sto­ries from her books and also to think of ideas on how her new book could end.

She ex­plained to them the process of how she be­came an au­thor, showed them the draft copies of Ol­lie Dis­cov­ers the Plan­ets and the chil­dren acted out the story with Ol­lie and in­flat­able plan­ets.

The chil­dren en­joyed her visit and were able to buy signed copies of both of her books, Ol­lie Dis­cov­ers the Plan­ets and Ol­lie Dis­cov­ers the Di­nosaurs.

A spokes­woman for the school said: “Anya would like to come back to visit us to read her third book, Ol­lie Dis­cov­ers the Arc­tic.

“How­ever she hasn’t got an end­ing for her book and would like the chil­dren to get in­volved.

“So on her next visit she will be ask­ing the chil­dren to think of how Ol­lie’s Arc­tic ad­ven­tures may end and she may choose one of the chil­dren’s ideas as an end­ing to her book.

“The chil­dren are all su­per ex­cited about this.”
